Re: Hello from Connecticut

Hello Mickey, Welcome to the forum. I just recently purchased the Amscope T720 as well. All I can say is wow! You will not be disappointed. I will be putting up a post in the My Microscope section in next few days. I also very successfully maintained a reef tank for six years. After some initial lea...

Re: Hello Microbe Hunters - New Here and Ready to Buy my Next Microscope

Update: I decided to go with the Amscope T720. It's on order. I will start a new topic in the "My Microscope" section once it comes in. I may do an unboxing video since it doesn't look like there is a whole lot of info on this scope out there.

Cheers,

Re: Hello from Mansfield UK

It seems folks that like microscopes like telescopes too, and vise-versa. I have a Coulter Odyssey 10" Dobsonian that I have enjoyed very much.

Re: Hello Microbe Hunters - New Here and Ready to Buy my Next Microscope

Hey All, Thank you very much for the good wishes as Hurricane Dorian came by and threatened Florida. Thankfully, it stayed just off shore, coming within about 80 miles of my coast. We got some 60 mph bands, but no damage or flooding thankfully. We were lucky this time. I wish I could say the same ab...

Re: Hello from Mansfield UK

Hello Mark and welcome to the forum. I just joined last week, so newbie here too. The T490 looks like a great scope. I'm looking at Amscope (T720) as well.
I'm one post below yours at the moment (Beerbatter).

Cheers,

Re: Hello Microbe Hunters - New Here and Ready to Buy my Next Microscope

Just touching base again to say thanks for all the advice. Really appreciated. Haven't been working the microscope decision thing for a couple days due to working hard to batten down the hatches for Hurricane Dorian. I live right on the east coast of Florida, right in the danger zone. Luckily as of ...

Re: Hello Microbe Hunters - New Here and Ready to Buy my Next Microscope

Hello again all, Thank you very much for all the great feedback. This is all very helpful for me. I want to clarify the price point on my chosen scope in case it makes any difference on the advice you all have provided. Amscope's "Red" reduced price relative to the "Strike Through" black price is th...

Hello Microbe Hunters - New Here and Ready to Buy my Next Microscope

Hello to all Microbe Hunters from a relative newbie here in sunny Florida in the US. New to the forum as of today, but I've been playing with the vintage Graf Apsco shown in the picture for about 3 years now. I have learned a lot from this simple, basic microscope. The company that I used to work f...
