What is your microscopy history? What are your interests? What equipment do you use?

Hi everyone. I bought a couple of used microscopes earlier this year and having fun once again observing the world of tiny things (the last time I used microscopes was in the 80's, forgotten almost everything, re-learning as a go). I setup a micro-aquarium a couple of months ago and its been providing lots of observations/entertainment. I enjoy building/tinkering and my latest microscope is going to be worked on, hope you don't mind me asking a few questions. Thoroughly enjoy reading the posts on here, thought it was time to say hello and contribute where I can.
Will do Tom. One is an unknown model 1970's monocular Gillett & Sibert, the other a Chinese made Apex trinocular, also model unknown. The Apex came without a photo tube so I'm in the middle of designing/testing/3D printing one to accommodate an Olympus NFK photo eyepiece and mount for DSLR (fun times). Will post pics etc soon. Thanks for the welcome.
