40x lens X 10x ocular =400 magnification. It's in a science lab with a built in high resolution camera.

Lucky, would it not be 40X magnification?
I am a regular confocal microscope user and the type of picture and size of the alga suggests to me 40X. 60-100X is the maximum magnification you get from most regular microscopes-in any case, congratulations, it is a very beautiful picture :-)

Congrats! You're definitely a Lucky Logan, that's for sure. I didn't even know that there were those kind of things out there.

Heterocysts and all! Thank you so much for sharing, I love this. I have a cyanobacteria spotting, but my camera is terrible :(
