Re: What is the difference between these microscopes ? Which one is better ?

No, hyperbole fits this thread.. Hyperbole: "exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally".. This person asked for a simple choice of #1 or #2.. Not a lengthy and boring paper on the Chinese microscope industry.. It appears that the defect has chased another one away before they ...

It is a shame he will be covered up with hyperbole before he can even start... A common defect in this forum...

Re: What is the difference between these microscopes ? Which one is better ?

Hi Pete, Maybe Prime could put the film in and leave it?... I certainly agree there might be much better stands out there.. I was going to suggest that he look at AmScope ... They have a line up of various models and pricing.. I just don't feel that a new person MUST have an expensive stand to start...

Re: Dark-field white sugar

Sounds like you have chosen a rather difficult project.. Looks like it will require a large amount of samples to assay... Good luck!.. I would be interested in seeing more of your photos from time to time..

Re: What is the difference between these microscopes ? Which one is better ?

If I had to choose, it would be the second one.. You are probably going to get some posts that say neither one is good because it is not a $3000 "big four" and it is made in China.... Either one should be adequate for hobby use..
