  1. I just recently came across a very helpful website: https://www.microbehunter.com/microscopy-forum It is a friendly site, and I’ve gotten quick replies to some very specific questions about a vintage microscope I recently acquired. There are a number of forums, including one for people looking to buy/sell parts. Some of the folks there have some pretty obscure old microscope parts if you ever find yourself in need of some. They’re also good for advice on how to setup and optimize your microscope.
  2. On July 1st, 2021, I went for the first time to a public, personal site and was very pleased with the results of my fossil excursion. The locale consists of several exposed formations, namely the Liberty formation I was hunting in. In my region of southwestern Ohio, that's known to be one of the best fossil-hunting formations due to its remarkable preservation of particularly fragile Ordovician life, even when compared to the excellent fossil preservation quality of other formations in the area. The thirty-three degrees Celsius heat was rather hot by itself, and as the sun's rays
  3. Hi everyone, I have been collecting fossils for some time, but this is my first post in the forum. I've recently acquired a stromatolite slab from the Strelley Pool formation. I have access to a laboratory compound microscope, and I was wondering if there is anything interesting that can be seen under magnification. I understand that I probably won't be able to see microfossils of any sort in this magnification, but I'm just wondering whether there are any interesting/discernible structures. I have an image that I took via this microscope att
  4. So I make slides of microfossils from ~ <1mm - 2mm. I use a glue that I make with food grade gum tragacanth and water as was recommended to me when I first started. However, I have always found it a bit annoying to make, get the consistency right and keep properly, especially as I haven't been able to find any definitive guides to this. I'm wondering whether any of you use gum tragacanth as well and have a ratio/recipe/advice for me? Or if anyone has had good success (long lasting, dries clear, secure, fossil safe) with any other type of glue? Thanks!
  5. I bought a pack of dinosaur bone rubble ( Sauropod allegedly) to make up the min price on a order of rock. Polished up a bit on my flat lap and did a fluorescence scan just on the endogenous fluorescence. Turns out to glow all over the shop and makes a great test slide . The microscope tracks a laser spot across the sample and measures the fluorescence produced at whatever wavelengths you set. The first image is one frame at higher res, the field of view is about 60 microns. but I was testing the frame stitching so the second image is a tiled scan - same res. The original files are 3d too tho

    Filming Conodonts

    Hi! I recently acquired a bunch of microfossil samples for kids to play but did not expect them to be so small. We tried some microscopy but ended up applying a little trick that actually to helped to film them "in action", which was kind of cool. I do not know if this technique is a common knowledge or not but I decided to share. Perhaps, it will be of use to somebody. Here you go: Any suggestions for improvements? Thanks!
  7. Hoping some of the pros here are willing to share microfossil prep techniques or suggestions to journal articles on the subject. I have been hunting conodonts and the like for quite some time, but the glacial acetic acid digestion and pan and scan techniques have failed me. I experimented with HCl and H2SO4 in various concentrations, and even tried some ion exchange extractions ( which work on paper, but are lousy in practice)! This sort of fossil hunting has become vendetta for me and I suspect I am using the wrong search terms in the academic data bases. I'll be

    Looking for a Stereo Microscope in Europe

    Hi everyone! I'm looking to buy a Stereo Microscope in Europe for microfossil observation and was wondering if anyone can point out recommended brands. The price range for me is <400 Euros. Thanks!
  9. Thought I'd share this here. I just purchased a nifty device for aiding photography through the microscope with a cell phone. I shoot photos through the scope all the time, and if you have ever done this, you know that it takes surgeon's hands to find the eyepiece, center the photo, and get a crisp image. This device clamps to the eye-piece and works on monocular and binocular scopes. It adjusts for the placement of any cell phone. A bit pricey at $189 (available online at Scientific Device Laboratory), but I had to have it and already love it. Here's a pic without the p

    Wood Cell Structure

    Hello Forum, This week I've been having fun trying to get better at making photographs through the microscope. I currently use a compact camera (Panasonic DMC-TZ25) on a tripod. The following previous threads were quite helpful and I am looking for more tips, tricks and techniques. For example, does anyone here have good ideas on how to photograph specimens with very little contrast/color through the microscope? Thanks, Tim All: Araucarioxylon* wood from the Triassic of the Chinle Fm., Arizona, United States. Cross-sections showing typical honeycomb-shaped tracheids. Left: Osmun
