We decided on a configuration with a moving nozzle that can hold two oculars, and have one moderately powerful one for rummaging through samples, and one very powerful one for staring the forams straight into their pores. Unfortunately, we couldn't keep these parts; they were demonstration models. But three weeks later the parts had arrived, and the man was back to screw the whole hing together. So now I can start for real! And it's lovely to be able to look at these forams up close and personal. I wonder how many of my old identifications I will now recognize as wrong, as I can see everything so much clearer now!
The microscope, version 1.2! Notice the double ocular, and the working space underneath the ocular that is in use here.
