    Hi. I bought a new toy for us to play with. I always wanted one as a kid, and only ever really got to look at lame things like owl pellets and bird feathers through them in school. So now I have one. And I'm not sure how to use it yet. But it has a USB port and reviews say it's quality.

    So, what should we start with?

    Pretty sure I said this would be the first reply and even got who would post it correct.

    This stupid thing didn't even come with one test slide. Rigged a quick sample for experimental purposes. Here's some "budder" smeared on a small cut out piece of plastic water bottle. I'll grab some glass slides tomorrow and we'll make some proper observations. Shout out to @BJTT-Pella@BJTT-Pella. I'm sure he'll wanna have a peek at these. :D

    Hopefully better. If not, I'm going to return it and get one with proper video output. The optics are very impressive though. Focus is crystal clear through the eyepiece.

    The plastic is fucking up the light. Plus I can't smash it down. Need to wait until I get glass slides tomorrow.

    We had a nice one in the Army that we'd use to inspect micro stress fractures in the airframe with. In to see what kind of shit we can check out with this one.

    Light is key with these. You need a thin cross section to work with and proper slides to get the best lighting possible.

    @teamquestnorth@teamquestnorth get a q-tip, swab your dick, and put it on a slide. Let's see what you got growing on there.

    Dude. instead of us telling you what to scope, you should pick random things and have us guess what it is.
