Thanks for the comments Hi Paul,I haven't looked at diatoms before. Do you know of a good 'DIY' source? Can they be found in pond water, or can they be cultured like infusoria?The trick for me was to use super macro setting on the camera, (mine is 4.0 mega pixels), and to make sure the camera was kept steady and for the camera lens to be well aligned with the microscope eye piece. Hope that helps.I would love to own my own light microscope. How much would a good one cost?
Mmm, I see a project coming up. Bee

Two? I'm intrigued. I could do a diy microscope light as I already have the bits for it, something I had already planned.
Hi _Stefan_Erm, Cannabis Sativa [:I] one of a series of photographs for an article but never published. Hehe, thats what I thought paul!Giz a week or so and I'll see what I can knock together. The one I use is just a single led and not enough light for high magnifications. Maplin Electronics has a small high brightness 3 led torch for around 5 euro so I'm going to try and use the bits from that.Bee
that article was not wrote on a rizla paper was it?
Hahaha! Sorry Paul, some of the photos I have there aren't mine. They're just from websites I've come across. I wish I could get such a good photo as that daphnia with eggs :pI'll go through my album sometime this week and move all the photos that aren't mine to a different subalbum
