Fun.

It looks a bit flashy but it really isn't a complex bit of tech, more a toy than anything. My kids picked it up at Aldi for $45 AUD (40 USD, 27 GBP, 31 EUR).

The barrel houses a dinky 1.3 mpx web cam and three fixed focal length lenses, giving 10x, 60x and 200x magnification with fine focus achieved by lifting or lowering the specimen tray beneath camera. The barrel can be removed from the the stand, so theoretically it can be used mobile... not sure whether the cam will be able to track at all without crashing the laptop, but I'll give it a try later.

Couldn't think of a better gift to receive for Mother's Day.

I do like my gadgets... but I don't think there will be anymore for awhile. My next purchase will be a new greenhouse, then I'll have something to pimp out with a few solar/12v dc gadgets.

Pretty sure I still have a couple of small pv panels from Dick Smith's floating about.

Thanks Ganja, haven't had the scope out much, I've filled the hdd again so it's running like a dog. Time for a new external drive and reformat, then i should be able to get images without too much frustration.
