We have used the Internet since its inception to bring people around the world to a central point freely to explore the concept and pursuit of a hobby. We used the Internet as it was emerging, way back, to accomplish that. This is a good site to understand the emergence of the Internet (if you wish to) and to consider what it represents in its potential today. A thought worth sharing... so, here you go.

August 'In Focus', new book: In Search of Stardust: Amazing Micrometeorites and Their Terrestrial Imposters by Jon Larsen, Voyageur Press, August 2017. Typically £12-53 in hardback.

A valuable resource for anyone interested in micrometeorites and how to distinguish them from the large number of 'imposters'. To the amateur microscopist the 'imposters' could well be as interesting as the much rarer chance of finding a micrometeorite (in urban areas) and the book is effectively a valuable dust atlas.


A small collection of portable digital microscopes
are being sold off ay bargain prices
here.


As an example, thus is one of them:

Brunel Desk Top 1.3M Microscope

The ideal hand held microscope for the office,
workshop or home use. The Desk Top Microscope
is a digital system  that provides an image directly
to a laptop or PC for viewing. This microscope has
a magnification range of x10 to x200 and has in
built LED illumination with brightness control.
The corded 1.3M unit connects by a USB lead to
a USB2 on the laptop or PC and has a polarising
filter built in that reduces the ‘glare’ from reflective
surfaces. The unit takes still images and video clips
with the ability to make measurements on the captured images. Used only by ourselves for customer
demonstrations.

Price £64 + vat.   Take a look?

Best to read this small book first.
 

Micscape Magazine and founder of this site wrote a book to help young first time users.

Pippa's Progress. The book above might help and the free suite of videos of Pippa showing how to use a microscope and study things available here at Mic-UK.


Microscopy As A Hobby In The 21st Century. A lot of books out there on starting out with microscopy as a hobby are now quite old, and in this brave new era, fail to address advantages offered by our new technologies. Our book, aimed at the person first starting out with a microscope (of any age) introduces modern techniques and methods whilst retaining the best from the past. Repeatedly a Number 1 best seller on Amazon, per cheaper through Brunel Microscope books in the UK.

 


Little Imp CDs free online courtesy of Steve Gill - 
The contents of 66 CDs formerly sold by Savona Books and meticulously compiled by Steve Gill are now free online and hosted here on Microscopy-UK. A wide selection of public domain books and microscope makers' catalogues are offered, many of which are hard to source elsewhere. Many thanks for Steve's generosity.
