Hello from Toronto

#1 Post by Aslan » Thu Oct 25, 2018 3:00 pm

Hello all. My name is Tom and I am a biology teacher from Toronto. I use a Reichert inverted microscope and a mid-60s SM microscope for demonstrations in my class. My interests tend to algae and pond life. I am also an amateur astronomer and photographer so I guess I love all things optical.

Hi Aslan, welcome

Don't forget to post images of your microscopes in the My microscope section. I am sure we would all like to see them.
Zeiss Standard WL (somewhat fashion challenged) & Wild M8
Olympus E-P2 (Micro Four Thirds Camera)
