    The one marked as a scale looks more like coprolite to me, but that might just be the lack of depth of field, otherwise nice Smile
    Is this with one of the £35 ish usb camera microscopes?

    I'm probably going to get something like that after uni- although at the moment I can use the uni's brand new £1000+ camera microscope Smile, the difference clear geek -my pics are on here
    The first picture with the coin is just my normal camera through a hand lens, the rest are from the microscope- the ruler is in 1mms!

    yea. I just wanted to take close up pics of microfossils and didn't want to blow my budget. you could can get better ones then mine all over the place but they will cost up to £20 more for the same microscope else were so I got mine almost as cheap as you can first hand.

    Aparently tho i have not tried it: scanning micro fossils with a regular flat bed scanner works well. Has anyone tried that or gota scanner to give it a go?

    It'd probably only work if the fossils were smaller than the depression in the scanner itself where the paper goes, so Aust stuff might be a little to big.. If I ever dig mine out from under a pile of Moroccan stuff I might give it a go
