USB Digital microscope  Photo Res=1600X1200  Mag Range 20X -1000X  USB 3.0    Focus Range 15mm-40mm     The Jury is still out for me on this scope.  Not what I exspected,  Compared to my other 300X scope in which pics are posted here,this is not a hellofalot better.Its really fussy when it comes to dialing in its magnifaction. shacky and very hard to obtain premere focus:( Bought it off amazon.ca for $55  "I dont recomend it."  The Led Lights (8) adjust but not good enough. Led light ,has to be dimmed down severely to get a natural colour.  Even this pic if you notice,for me its not clear & crisp enough. although it hits 800-1000X  <-thinking->

Cut off a slice then polish the surface, this eliminates reflections from obscure surfaces.

How to cut a thin section the results are outstanding had this fossilized specimen just been cracked like an egg the surface would look like sandpaper,

Like they say garbage in garbage out, do a thin section then give us a review on your scope..

Polishing is the secret to good microscopy.

Yes to what admas said. That 15mm-40mm  focal range isn't depth of field! Depth of field gets very short at high magnification.  Tilt to the scope/object axis makes focus across the whole object impossible Your image looks out of focus. I suggest just trying something already flat to see if you can focus.  Power isn't real important - pixels and focus are - you can zoom in a high pixel well focused image to achieve higher magnification.
