Jim here. Coming from 50 years of amateur astronomy. Way back in college took some Medical Lab tech courses. Learned how to count white blood cells and such. Culture and stain bacteria for microbiology classes. Hadn't thought about microscopy for 40 years (though have a little hand held unit that was used occasionally) Ad pops up on FB marketplace and I make an offer on an old Zeiss compound , THEN start down the rabbit hole, researching them (found this spot). Didn't get the Zeiss but now waiting on 2 scopes I've purchased. :)
