@echo, I don't know about that one, I use the Bysameyee USB digital. I like it but haven't used any other. It's like 25 usd.

@echo I have a clip on 60x I'm not happy with . Super hard to focus. I honestly think taking trichome pics has been the most frustrating out of my grow experience.

@greenbee Im the same, Iv bought a clip on one, a small pocket Carson one and a jewellers magnifying glass, the magnifying glass is the best of the 3, I cant get the other 2 to focus on anything unless they are sitting on my table, and I dont want to cut buds off the plant just so I can take pics of the trichomes.lol

Iv been thinking about buying the usb one that Woodi2 mentioned but I cant really afford it right now cos iv bought so much other stuff. But I think a usb one will be the way to go for the best pics.

@echo if you have a look on amazon for Bysameyee USB digital, it says its 40x-1000x, (might not be the same one Woodi2 has tho) I must buy one next month anyway and give it a try, theres too much on my card this month after buying a new light and some other things

Stootie has the right specs, and they can be hard to focus. It took me one grow and a thousand pic to figure it out. I turn the magnification up to about 3/4 of the way. Then I hold the bud and slowly move the scope in and out to focus. Trying to turn the focus knob and hold it still didn't work for me. But I cup my hand around it to help shade the grow lights. You'll see once you start playing with it. I figured it out you can to, and this is one of the least expenses items you'll have in this hobby. 😎 peace.
