Microscope April2011

Fai saw a dead bug. He took out the microscope and tried to adjust the focus lens but before he could, the fan blew the dead bug away and he couldn't find it. The microscope was taken into the garden where the lighting was better and no gust of wind to blow away his specimen.
There was a dead spider on the floor, so under the lens it went...
We could see 4 of its many eyes
A rusty nail was examined

This is a very basic light microscope, bought it for RM50 years ago in a toy warehouse sale in TTDI. They used to hold it yearly but not anymore. Try to Google for it?

That is what I need, a portable microscope so my niece can take it around and look at all kinds of stuff. Great article!
