I've just recently got my first real microscope, it is an old Spencer AO-2 that I picked up off of ebay. I've been having a blast with it. This pic is some kind of rotifer (any help?) that I found in water from a local pond (Colorado). I made a dark-field stop by gluing a piece of tin foil to a slide and it works pretty well. This pic is shot by holding my digital camera up to the eyepiece. 100x magnification.

I'm learning so much from this group. Thank you all!

Hi ya' Non-Prophet Very Happy

Welcome aboard Exclamation Very Happy It's nice to see you posting here and you've made a great first post. It looks like you'll be posting some great darkfield images. Yes, this is a bdelloid rotifer. Did you happen to know that all bdelloid rotifers are females; no known males? I love these organisms. My aquarium is chock full of bdelloid rotifers. Thanks for sharing this with us. Very Happy

Best regards, Very Happy
