Jan Hoover was right about looking on e-bay if you're in the market for a
used microscope. I did a search on "microscope" and there were over 2100
hits, of which probably about 200 are really microscopes (and not
peripherals). I will say, though, that probably half the sellers of scopes I
checked out have at best a fuzzy idea of what they're selling. There was one
approx. 50 year old Leitz Wetzlar scope for $175 that looked pretty good,
though (my prejudice is to stick with German/Swiss optics...).
