Welcome to my new Microscopy Blog

Digital photos taken with the Digital Blue QX3+ Digital Microscope

I'm still new at this so please bear with the quality for now. I'm working to improve it.

Here's the first few images from my QX3+. By the way, if you want to buy one and you're running Windows XP, be sure to get the XP upgrade from Intel's website here.

Now on with the first photos! Click to enlarge.

This is a great site! Keep it going. I came to this via the boingboing link.

I am a 56 year old who still loves to play with toys. I saw one of these QX3's on a special sale at MicroCenter here in Dallas for about $40. I thought it looked like a great toy, but I forgot about it when I checked out. I kick myself now.

Is there a good site to purchase these on the internet?

BTW, I loved the cannabis pics. I can remember examining leaf and thinking I could see that much detail ... but it must have just been good smoke!

I got this one from eBay which is always a risk, but I thought that it was worth the risk for such a low price.

this could be you take requests? I'd like to see a series on different metals, and different hairs(human, animal, etc.)or even different crushed rocks. Very interesting

have you tried making red/green stereo images...

1) take a picture and make it red.
2) move the slide a fraction to the left or right
3) make a 2nd picture and make it green
4) merge the layers and put on red/green glasses

Drugs are just bad, you should try to use Herbal Alternatives as a temporary replacement to loose the dependance!
