Re: Vickers M17 refurb' & modification

Very nice, well done. You should put a side by side comparison photo, before and after. It's a pain having to scroll up and down to see the differences. :D

Re: YoupTekView for OMAX camera

All Touptek USB camera part numbers begin with TP as the first two characters followed by six numbers and one letter. Omax is unlikely to be the manufacturer of this camera, it is most probably from Touptek. I have a camera which I bought from Bresser which is made by Touptek but branded Bresser and...

Re: Video streaming with a strereo microscope

It seems to be a really powerful free program.

Re: On the matter of being a beginner !

Join the club. There is so much more fun in being a beginner, you can get away with almost anything and ask lots of what appears to some as being 'dumb' questions and find out the most amazing things. We have quite a number of courses here in Germany that my wife can attend as learning courses and g...

I don't think Dave S was berating anyone for not visiting the website, just expressing an opinion that it would be sad to loose a site that he clearly thinks is good.

Re: Video streaming with a strereo microscope

Re: Amscope T720 vs. Swift SW380T

We have the Bresser equivalent of the T720 which I have found to be very good. The objectives make a difference in that the full field of view is in focus however they are a lot more expensive. We also have an interest in Pilz (Mushrooms, which is why I chose this particular microscope). If you are ...

The moon will probably end up looking like a piece of Swiss cheese as they burrow through it looking for water.

They claim to be manufacturers !! but I am not totally convinced. I do have one of their scopes and I am very pleased with it (still). Here is the supplier that I bought my scope from when I was at a mineral show in Clausthal-Zellerfeld (where they are based):- https://www.winlab.de/schule/mikroskop...
