Hey Guys. Got drunk and bought a microscope.

It claims it can go up to 1000x magnification, but I'm a bit incredulous about that...

Anyway. Taking requests.

I didn't realise it wouldn't come with slides, so cellular level stuff is kinda limited, but I'll pick some up as soon as possible.

Leeches make me curious, but I also think they're the most disgusting creature on earth, so I'll need to work up the courage for that one...

Waterbears don't like the moss I tried apparently, but I'll try again with different moss.

Unfortunately no. The closest thing I could find was the rubber around my phone's Otterbox. Not nearly as textured as an analogue stick.

>>2073944

I begged a microscope like that from my parents as a kid and was disappointed that I couldn't see microbes. The way they get away with saying 1000x is by making it area magnification. Linear magnification works out to roughly 35x. The microscopes I work with these days (livin' the dream, baby) have 10x in the eyepiece and 10/20/40/100x objectives. With actual 1000x (10x ocular and 100x oil objective) magnification, individual bacteria show up nice and big.

These are some pretty nice pictures. I like insect wings. Snowflakes are always great if you've got the weather for it and some hair spray to fix them. And any food is fun to look at.
>>
This post is great!
>>
>>2074529
What kind of stuff do you look at? Infection swabs and stuff?
>>
>>2074557

Research on biofilms. We give the bacteria fluorescent proteins and look at how they structure themselves on a surface. Give a few different species different colors and we can figure out how they're interacting. I mean, most of the work is with their genetics and how they're expressing genes in those conditions, but my favorite part is the microscopy.

pls fine tune the focus whenever you're at anything above 100x
>>
>>2073944
You need to practice using the focus more. You can actually focus through things at that magnification if they are thin enough. Try slicing your softer samples at an angle then focusing through them to see interior structures. Also, assuming your microscope has its own light, use it in a dark room, you're getting to much reflection off the samples.

Post a pic and Ill tell you if it has a contrast filter. If it does you can make pseudo-3d images

How interesting the similarly between cat and horse while still being so different from a human
>>
>>2075082
The horse hair is clearer and has split ends and stuff.

Maybe that's just because the horse lives outside and the cat lives inside.

Or maybe it's a dietary thing: carnivores have healthier hair than herbivores.

It is easy to see if there are gills on whales. It's not as easy to see "flowers" on moss

>>2075515
>It is easy to see if there are gills on whales
Is it? Fish don't have external gills.
On the other side, it's quite easy to see the sporophyte of a moss.

I had a microscope growing up and one of my favorite things to do was smear the slide with peanut butter and then put a micro dab of Dawn dishwashing liquid on there. Weirdly specific but I was fascinated for some reason.
