Great images, love the detail...strange that I have a much different view of insects now that I am trying to photograph them as opposed to when I only wanted to kill them. :)

Re: Me Too

It does have full view on the D7100 at 7x but the image is rather "cloudy" for lack of a better word Suggestion: remove the camera, place your eye at the end of the tube and look around for reflections from the sides of tubes, coupling rings, and so on.

Re: Me Too

Like tevans, I am thinking about getting a starter microscope. I have figured out most of the stuff about this AMScope microscope ( I am not a microscope guy, never having worked with one), but still have some questions.

For that much, I would suggest a used Bausch & Lomb StereoZoom 7, from a reputable dealer. On boom stand (more expensive) or regular stand; it would be up to you. Add 0.5x and/or 2x ancillary objectives, depending on your need. I like mine a lot. That rig provides total useful magnification from 5x...
