Asphalt Art Very cool shots. I remember buying one of the Fleabay digital microscopes when I was stationed in Salerno, Afghanistan in '08 to inspect precious stones I was finding in the markets. It had video outputs for monitors, and did a great job for the price. It saved me a large sum of money on some purchases (finding out some stones were glass, etc.)

Only problem I had was running out of things to put under it.

I haven't done that yet, so I guess I'll have to try it out.

I'm only familiar with basic microscopes, so I have no idea what those are (or a small idea, actually). As for the lighting, it's an adjustable LED lamp. It's pretty bright and white, but a little low for viewing oil immersion well.

Phone works better than a point and shoot camera, in my experience. I have a harder time with a camera (I have a Canon S95), and while the phone takes practice, it's pretty quick and efficient as you get the hang of it.

dski13 I think in elodea leaves you can see the chloroplasts moving around to adjust to varying light levels using a microscope.
