Through the microscope

Space, the final frontier


I seem to have run out of space for microscopes. My shelving unit is full, I have stuff under the table, under the stairs and upstairs too.

That’s just the microscopy stuff. The sewing stuff is another problem.

Clearly I need a new house. A maid would be good too!

  1. It looks like you’ve managed to stay organized, despite a need for more storage space. But that’s my problem too — nowhere to put anything. I moved from a modern, normal-sized house with a garage, to an old townhouse with practically no storage space, and not even a reserved parking space, let alone a garage. The lack of space to put things is awful.


  2. Nice to find a fellow aficionado of microscopes.
    Looking through the image I am curious of the scopes in your collection.
    I spy, through the dust covers, some nikons and Zeiss?
    Do tell..:)


    • Two Nikon S L ke one with interference phase, 2X Vickers biological probably M14 or similar (one with kohler and one without) a Vickers Patholette (phase contrast), and a collection of Cooke Troughton and simms – M6000, M2000, M1000 polarising microscope and a CTS phase microscope. Oh, and a Brunel MX7T.

      I need more….
