This may sound like a mundane question, but should you check your trichs for amber under HID lights, or regular, or does it matter? It just occurred to me that the lights mess up cameras, and due to the spectrum may shift what we visually process. I have HPS, MH, and flouro side light in room.

I think the lighting will make a difference when looking at trichs. THG says that she takes a leaf out into regular light and places it on a flat surface to check the trichs. I use a lighted loupe that has the blue/white light LEDs in it and it seems to offset the yellow of my HPS, but it is still tricky then. I may start doing like 'Goddess' on my upcoming harvest.

As the others my scope has a blue/white led that offsets the hps so I can still tell inside my room.

I cut a leaf (usually one or two at different heights on the plant) and put it on a piece of white paper on a flat surface and my scope has a LED light. This is the only way that I can see the amber.

Has anybody tried one of the digital ones that can take stills and you can see what you are looking at on the computer screen via a USB. As I get older and can't see as well, I thought this might help.

When in the room I look at the buds themselves as well as all the sugar leaves around them. I try to get a general consensus of the whole plant. I look in multiple places all over it.
