Our microscope just isn't working out. It's a few years old, but it was cheap. Basically, it's junk.
Today we tried looking at skin cells and neither Thomas nor I could see. When DH came home, he took it apart, cleaned the lenses, and it still didn't work. You get what you pay for. We paid under $100 for this thing and it wasn't worth that much.
We need a new one. Something under $200. We need something that will last years. Something that is good -- well, as good as can be for that price.
DH told me to start researching, to check Carolina Biological, Edmund Scientifics, and I thought I'd check out homesciencetools.com as well.
I'm clueless, though. Thought I'd ask for recommendations first.
