My friend Don has given me a microscope! He salvaged it from his work where they were apparently just going to throw it away. It’s a bit old but still serviceable and a quantum leap above the even older toy one I had.
Someday I would like a decent dissecting scope (since my interests run more towards the not quite microscopic but still sometimes small). Maybe something with a digital camera built into it…
Regardless, thank you Don!!! Much appreciated!
This looks very nice! I always wanted do a sperm count (for personal use only). This equipment looks like it will do the job nicely. ;-)
I like your library but it’s a shame you don’t have any books on evolution. LOL!
Yes, there is a definite dearth of books on the subject in my collection… :)
Always nice to save a useful item from the dump. While it looks a bit aged, it appears to be of good quality.
Looks like a 2 speed coarse/fine adjustment, and I can’t tell if that is an adjustable stage, but it looks like it could be. Only drawback I see is it could use a halogen bulb upgrade. But hey, you don’t quibble when the price is right : )
There are days I will drag out our microscope, have one of the brats go get me some pond water, and spend an afternoon looking at all kinds of neat stuff. Have fun!

You can dissect the theory of evolution under that microscope, no problem.
OK troll, I have given you more than a fair chance, one more trolling comment and you’ll have the dubious honor of being the first person for me to ban.
