Introduction . . .

This is a brand new blog, by a brand new blogger. However, some readers may recognize this blog's title, taken from a series of books of the same name. Unfortunately, time has a way of gradually making printed material all too quickly outdated -- especially these days -- and so, this blog was created partly as an attempt to address that issue.

As we move forward from here on-going efforts will be made to transfer selected content from the Better Microscopy books series into this new format, not only to provide to provide more effective distribution, but also as a means for making timely additions and overdue updates to that material. In addition, much previously unpublished material is now planned to be released, including high-resolution color images.

The current plan is to aim for a content mix that is both interesting and educational -- perhaps even inspiring -- and which will address the needs and interests of a wide range of user levels, from beginner to semi-professional. With more decades of Microscopy experience than I care to admit, I hope I will be able to contribute something to others in terms of both knowledge and enjoyment.

I hope you find something of interest in new undertaking as it takes shape and gain much from its content, now and well into the future!

Just beware of the occasional attempts at humor...

Thanks for visiting!

Reichert microscopes -- going... going... GONE???

For those of you who may have missed it, Reichert Technologies (a.k.a. Reichert USA) announced they would discontinue Sales and Service for their Microscope products as of July 1, 2016: 

That day has come and gone and it appears they remain true to their word. And, even the links to their documentation for former microscope products has vanished from their Website!

However, there is (at least for the moment) and alternate source for Reichert product info, including many of their older microscopes, and even some AO-Reichert scopes. That link is here:

If you weed through the most recent (non-microscope) offerings many of the Reichert. AO-Reichert, and even some Leica/Reichert microscope catalogs are still there!

If you have, or envision, a need or use for any of this material you should probably grab (download) it now, before it also disappears...
