Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021
Mum tidied out the study a couple of weeks back and unearthed an old Meopta microscope (I think it had been a student model from a department in the UEA where a friend had worked so maybe once was good enough for science undergraduates) we were given years back. It came without a mirror and I had tried to work out a LED light for it but that got lost and my attempt wasn't that good. I debated whether to scrap it but found a Chinese sold mirror on ebay for £5 and thought it worth a try. It came today and is a perfect fit. I'm not sure what use it will get but I've ordered a cheap objective lens to replace one that isn't too good and, with luck, we'll have a reasonable microscope if we ever want one. Either way, it can stay on a living room table from now on.
