Hey everyone, I do not know much about Microscopes, but am looking at buying one. I am a Neuroscience (and physics but thats not important) major, and starting to do all kinds of research. For my own personal research, and also research done at school with insects, DNA, cells, and whatever, I want to get a really good microscope that will serve me well as I further my education in neuroscience and microbiology. So, here are some I am looking at. I was hoping major you can tell me the limitations of some of the ones I list below here. Maybe tell me important things to look for. I don't want a crappy one. This one is cheap and has LCD, but I have a feeling it wont cut it for serious stuff? http://www.islandeyepiece.com/shopexd.asp?id=1892 There is this one, that seems more advanced: http://www.islandeyepiece.com/shopexd.asp?id=1492 This one seems pretty costly for my first microscope. What do you think? http://www.islandeyepiece.com/shopexd.asp?id=1192 I think the best deal is this one...?? http://www.microscopenet.com/40x200...p-9110.html?osCsid=go5inj93pojo3dr6k5p7j3bg75 Or...if all these are no good, maybe you can recommend a good one for a research student?
