Looking at bigger, non-transparent objects

A frequent request is people who are interested in using a home-built microscope to look at larger objects that aren’t transparent, for example bugs, materials, or electronics. The OpenFlexure Microscope isn’t the ideal solution for this, because it’s heavily optimised for small objects and high magnification. For lower magnification, there is a dissection microscope that should be ideal for that sort of thing. You might also like to check out FlyPi which is an awesome project that’s ideal for looking at fruit flies - and one of the inspirations for the OpenFlexure Microscope.
