Magnifying scope/loupe solutions

Recommended Posts

Dashrimp

I am keeping daphnia together with rcs and I love to view them magnified. I'm using an old 50mm lens, which is great if the subject is right against the glass. I'd love to be able to view stuff in the tank.

Does anybody have any suggestions? A jewellers loupe? D&D nanoscope?

I have used a loupe, but it still has a short focal length, like 2 inches max.

Something that has large magnification will have a short depth of field, though

I just use a 5x hand held magnifying lens.

Seems to work for me.
