Microscope Trichome Pics?

Hi!! I’m having a killer time getting photos of trichomes. First problem is I have shaky hands, but even if I can steady them the fan is on the Grobo and moves the stems. But the hardest time I have is the light! Even if I double click the grobo on the back to make it in photo mode the light is still way too bright for my microscope. I see people with these great pics and was wondering what microscope you use and what do you do to the grobo to get the lighting to not glare? Do you shut off the grobo completely?


PS here’s some pics of how mine are coming out. Makes it really hard for me to see anything. Any tips or tricks?


Hey grower,

Grab one of these.

Then get some flat magnets and some adhesive. Secure magnets to the bottom of the base of the microscope. Attach microscope to the grobo inner wall securely with magnet, position on to bud. You will be steady Eddie now! Good luck!
