    Is there an app that measures trichome density?

    I just bought one of these from an old lady in a rock and fossil shop in Amsterdam during my vacation… I had no idea it was supposed to attach to an iPhone, and I don’t have one, but it’s a decent portable microscope. I still have an older one about the size of a candy bar, and this outperforms that one easily. The only drawback is that it uses those annoying little button batteries… but on the other hand, since it uses LEDs, I won’t have to change them as often.

    I’m waiting for the orbiting telescope attachment, myself.

    If that thing really does 60x, I will personally eat it. I give it no more than 6x.

    This looks just like the $2.95 microscope from American Science and Surplus with a little mounting plastic. Have at it, DIYers.

    Oops, non-illuminated for $2.95, UV illumination for $6.50.
