I read some were on the forum about a 30 power hand held magnifier sold by Radio Shack. Help, exactly what am I looking for. I bought a 60-100 power microscope type an it was way to strong.HELP.

You want a lighted jewellers loop. 20X is just enough to see trics on the bud. 30x is about as powerful a magnification you can hold steady while on the plant.

60x is as much as I can hold steady if the bud is laying on a table and I'm well braced.

I have been using a microscope made by Uncle Milton and I love it I don't think I would go back to doing it any other way!!! I just plug it into the laptop.

Why put yourself thru some much undue anxiety and stress, in time you will learn that a plant rarely goes all amber trics all at once , but 20% here and there, 20% clear on Monday by Wednesday is 20% pale yellow, by Friday 20% lite amber, etc etc...learn to judge at 10 feet like the pros ...and study

Mine is a 60x-100x and I love it.

It's also good for tripping out on all the gross stuff you can find on your hands when high... ;)

While that is an amazing picture, the magnification is not really strong enough to check the color of the trichs.

I don't really like the 60-100 either, preferring the 30X. However the 60-100 is not too strong. How are you attempting to use it?
