Getting started again..

#1 Post by Harold » Sun Aug 22, 2021 6:37 pm

I started out with a Edmunds Scientific cheapie microscope back when I was a teenager. Did enough front lawn clippings infusions to lend my room a sort of barnyard ambience. Returning to the hobby in the wilds of Southern Oregon some 55 years later.

Welcome,Harold..this community which Oliver Kim setup is terrific for sharing microscopy. Do you have a good starter microscope now? What sort of microscopy are you thinking about enjoying? Again, welcome. charlie g

If UPS delivers on schedule (big IF), I'll be in possession of a very nice, new to me Olympus BH2 sometime tomorrow. I plan to sample some of the quieter back waters of the Rogue River and culture anything that looks interesting. Having been a deep sky astro-photograper I also plan to do some micro-photography as well. Right now, those efforts are limited to what I can do with an eyepiece adapter and my iPhone.
