The electronic microscopes are definitely tricky. There are light issues, work holding issues, and adjustment issues.

The one I got is on peebay:

$432 with economy shipping:

"Trinocular-Metallurgical-Microscope-Metal-Surface-Inspection-w-1-3Mp-USB-Camera"

I'd like higher power and more resolution, but apparently, the turret cameras for microscopes are a lot more expensive than regular cameras. Stuff with turret and binocular view in the 800x category+ seems to be another notch up in price.

We'll see how it goes - the stability, light control and true magnification should really help do what I want to do, and maybe give me the opportunity to educate my kids on some interesting (but not critical to know) non-metal things that don't fit on a bio microscope slide.

All in all, I can't fault what I've gotten out of my first scope for $11.

(these pictures were taken from it, but I can't coax any more out of it with edges and that's at high magnification. Still not bad - you can see enough to know what's unfinished or damaged by a strop if you're honing razors).
