P.S. Another possibility is to get a mechanical microscope stage with micrometers. That is, it is a stage that can move in the X, or X-and-Y directions where each direction...etc

Yes I agree with Anthony here. In fact you are going to need this to handle even using you new device, as you certainly can not span and observe any item in such a magnified field of view without assistance from an axis controller of some sort.

Starting to have some fun with the new scope :) The stage micrometer came in and I've calibrated it at 800x. I had to send the 100x objective lens back as it was defective, so I can't get up to 2000x yet... So far, the images I'm getting at 800x are great and I'm learning a lot in a short amount of time. I can't wait to share what I'm learning with you guys, just need more hours in the day!

Hi Clay,

Sounds exciting! :)
I'm curious... which stage micrometer did you end up getting?

Sincerely,

hey Anthony, help me out here. .. I will differ here to what you tell me: I seem to recall, from many many years past when sleeping through one my physics classes that there was some professor droning on about nanometers, and the wavelength of (human) visiable light and 1/2 a micron and, well anyway,, 2000X? optical?? I am a bit lost here...

Hey Lagrangian,

I ended up with one from Ted Pella, Inc. It is: "Micrometer Scale-Reflected Light 2mm in .01mm divisions" It's probably not ready for NASA, but I think it is good enough for the kind of work I'm doing. The microscope stage has built in axis control with pretty fine adjustments, so I didn't need that feature - I can easily scroll along the length of the blade or from shoulder to edge which is good enough for me. Next I need to design and build a stage that will hold my blades so I can take the samples in and out quickly without a lot of fiddling.
