For folks to decide whether a DIY microscope is a worthwhile approach in (for example) looking at dust pollution samples, how do some of the DIY options compare on:

  • price
  • resolution of a photo (in microns per pixel)
  • ease of use

Keep in mind we want to compare microscope/camera pairs! We can only get a "microns per pixel" number to compare with if you're taking a picture through a microscope. Thanks!
