Now it is time for you to enjoy your new equipment. Fill free to ask whatever you want, but maybe I’m not the right person to give you explanations on the subject, since all my knowledge is more or less empirical. Good luck !

Beautiful microscopy images and layouts!

I got my compound scope delivered and setup this week, haven’t yet gotten any lichens on a slide yet, but hoping to play around next week. I might hit you up for some tips, if you don’t mind. :)
