When I was 9 I got a microscope for Christmas with a set of prepared slides. I am 32 years old and I still have it. I LOVE microscopy. I love looking at things under microscopes and always have, but I'm a hopeless beginner. My darling hubs bought me a nice, grownup microscope a few months back and I've looked at some pond water and bugs I've found but I'm such a neophyte that I never know what I'm looking at. I feel like I have this incredible tool at my disposal that can unlock actual worlds, but I don't know how to really use it so that I can experience these worlds. I'm hoping that engaging with all of you here will help.

I'm not sure if this is how to write a forum post either- it's my first one ever.

Like I said, 'new new super new'.

Welcome aboard ... I too only joined very recently. I have attached a picture of my first microscope ... also at about 8 or 9. It is one of my most treasured possessions as it was a present from my father who always seemed to instinctively know where my interests were. I am now 69 years of age. I should point out that I actually used this little microscope as a field instrument while doing my Bachelor of Science degree (BSc., biology) back in the 1980's. It is actually quite sharp for what was was a toy in it's day, the objective and eyepiece are glass amazingly.
Cheers George.
