Re: Help with microscope aquisition!

My suggestions; Used big brand - vs. - new no big brand - vs - new big brand entry level? If you can inspect a used big brand try that. Your first time should warn you as to what you might get. "New no big brand" would be my choice unless you want to spend a fair bit of time finding and replacing ba...

HY-2307 camera - Once I get it all figured out, I’ll publish a review.
When you do I'll look forward to your review and more images.

Re: Chromosome in Lily Ovary 600X

Very nice. Sounds like you enjoy observing plant subjects but be careful or John B. will "Hook" you :)
I have ever try Onion root tips and squash it for wet mount. But I can not find clearly chromosome in the root tip sample.
I have been unsuccessful as well but I am not giving up.

Re: Illumination technique comparison using the same Closterium

Well done and very instructional.

IMHO oblique is most pleasing due to the 3D effect but the DIF reveals more detail - some of which could be due to the higher magnification/ resolution.

All are very good images.

Re: Stacking Software

Pat, back in 2015 I did a simple comparison between Picolay and CombineZP (another free stacking software). http://www.microbehunter.com/microscopy-forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1494 Pretty much a toss up between the two. Give CombineZP a try. I prefer CombineZP because I have been using it for so long.

Ciliate

My wife over watered the poinsettia plant and lots of little critters developed in the small pool of standing water. Here is a new ciliate for me ~200 Ums. I am not able to ID it so suggestions welcome. Image with 20X obj. http://i571.photobucket.com/albums/ss152/jtallon2/IMG_0035-200-Ums-JPEG_zpsb1...
