This Group  brings together people who are interested in microscopy as a hobby or profession. Let's share tips on equipment, supplies and
procedures. Topics include collecting or culturing algae, protozoa, bacteria and other specimens. Although the emphasis is on light (optical)
microscopes, all technologies are welcome. Photomicrography discussions are encouraged.
