New microscope with camera :)

I unexpectedly got a Bresser Biolux NV microscope with USB camera for xmas, it’s a good hobbyist microscope with 4x, 10x and 40x objectives, the kit came with some prepared specimens and even some shrimp eggs and an incubator for growing them, as well as spare slides and cover slips

Here are some captures from the included slides :

  1. Got my daughter the same model. Really impressed, she loves it. Could do with a better camera though. Will try to hack a multi- megapixle camera on to it later on.
