It's movie time!
The answer to yesterday's mystery image was: dust.
Neil, to answer your question, I would love to put out a book. Anyone know anyone who publishes that sort of thing? I have a proposal ready to go.
Vanessa, the oatmeal is an actual type of oatmeal which is cut into pieces instead of rolled and cooked like the quaker oats type. You can get McCann's Steel-Cut Oatmeal at Trader Joe's. It takes longer to make than Quaker Oatmeal but it's worth the wait.
Now, today we are doing something a little bit unusual. The QX3+ Microscope also has a video capability and I thought I'd take some movies of some of the little critters living at the bottom of my aquarium. They usually move too fast for a still picture or don't look very interesting unless they're moving, so I decided to take some (very small) videos of them. All of the videos are under AVIs which are less than 1 megabyte to download. After researching various video hosting sites, I decided to just put them on my own webspace.
Apologies if any of these are misidentified. This is from memory and guesswork. All movies are at 200x.

Here's the mystery pic at 60x. I have to take the weekend off. Back on monday!
