I looked at getting that microscope. I'm actually borrowing mine from my high school over winter break. When you get some pictures up, let me know! I'm really interested in that microscope.

Aven 26700-300 ZipScope USB Digital Microscope with 2 Mega-Pixel 10x-50x Optical, 200x Digital Magnification. We got it through Amazon. It does pictures and video. Looks like about $75. We got it on one of the daily super savers for about $10 cheaper w/free shipper.

Hi Lucky Logan. Love the microscope technique. I got a relatively decent digital microscope for my class and I've been trying the same thing. Your results are a lot better than mine! I'll keep working. Great job!

Thanks namitha. I actually used a microscope and a point and shot camera a short focal distance (Cannon SX150 IS). Put the lens against the ocular lens and angled it correctly. Just put up another spotting of a fish parasite with the same set up here http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/130...
