Introduction: How to Take Crystal Clear Digital Snapshots Through a Microscope Lens...

Picture of How to Take Crystal Clear Digital Snapshots Through a Microscope Lens...

*THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN DEFUNCT FOR SIX YEARS*

Hi folks, this I'ble is defunct and has been for a long time. I made it when I was very young, and had intended to delete this recently, but I unfortunately couldn't as I had entered it into a contest way back when. The original setup was fairly obtuse in it's design, and after getting a rare chance to use both SEM and TEM systems (I'm a biochemical researcher now), I've decided to abandon this project.

Step 1: The Supplies Needed

You will need: 1. A microscope (it doesn't matter the cost) 2. A digital camera (yes it has to be digital) 3

I suggest that you upload an actual picture that you have taken using the process that you describe, rather than a stock image you found on Wikipedia. That way we know this does what you say it does. Also, spellcheck would improve the clarity of your descriptions.

Have no fear! My own images are on the way... I am very sorry for the googled images, but I lost the stick drive with my images, my photos will include, hair, leaves, and just about anything cool under a micrsocpe, as well as a cool setup. Oh and any kids microscope will do (you can get them at walmart in the toys section, make sure you get a descent one). As I said I will be uploading better images soon (today, and they will be my own). keep responding...Thanx, k, bye...

The pic at the bottom is from a scanning electron microscope. I assume you don't have that in your basement.

Please add the link where you can buy a decent microscope for under $ 50.-!

How about some pictures taken with your own setup?

 I know that our local university was selling an old SEM a couple of years ago, so it's possible that someone would have one in their basement. I don't think it was under $ 50 though.

The binocular (light) microscope on my workbench was free... a juniour high school was just going to dispose of it because they had gotten nicer ones.

You are supped to use photos of your own, not googled images.

We would really like to see a photo of your set-up and photos of what you have taken through the 'scope.
