If you decide to go with a USB scope, make sure and get a good one and practice, practice, practice. They use LED's for lighting and pics can easily get washed out so you might need to learn some additional lighting skills. And it not all about zoom as pixelization can destroy an image if too much magnification is used. There are plenty of folks here who can help you on issues you run into when the time comes.
I will probably be asking more questions when I get one. Plenty of time to learn as the winters are long here in MN. I'm just happy I found a new hobby
One of our members posted images using his USB microscope listed below, and for the price, I was very impressed with it. I'll see if I can find that thread.
Whatever you do, please don't buy one just because it is cheaper. Too many of them aren't worth it.
Here is the thread I was talking about. The discussion about the USB scope begins with my post at the top of page 2. Please ignore the discussion about editing posts. The OP was still learning.
I didn't say you, I said me.
LOL. I had to re-look after your post because I thought I had posted something incorrect. Sorry for the misinterpretation. I retrospect it looks like you posted just a brief time after me. I suspect your response and mine hit the site very close in time.
Yes, that's what I was referring to. We posted at the same time but your post must have beat me by a second or so.
