I have been interested in the invisible world that can only be seen through a microscope for a long time. Ever since I was in grade school, then in high school, and in university as well.These pages describe some of what I used to see, how I got a camera adapter, and some fascinating photos I took as well.



Equipment advice wanted

I am a biology graduate, aged 71. In my younger days I did a lot of study of microorganisms like protozoa. I also did a little photomicroscopy, but the details are now forgotten.
I would like to take this up again as a hobby. I have a Canon SLR camera, but no microscope.
What micoscope would I need and are there adaptors available for fixing the camera onto the microscope?
What sort of money will I need to spend?

Any advice gratefully received.
