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 Unfortunately, time has a way of gradually making printed material all too quickly outdated -- especially these days -- and so, this blog was created partly as an attempt to address that issue.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 In addition, much previously unpublished material is now planned to be released, including high-resolution color images.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!

Back to work...?

With the make-believe horrors of Halloween now over with it seems sensible to return our attention to a genuine horror -- namely, this Blog!

Additional posts have been delayed by the need for software updates and by random Internet outages. A major computer upgrade is now underway in an effort to address these and other issues.

Additional work on Water Immersion objectives is now nearing completion and should be in presentable form shortly – hopefully, by mid-November.

Work on editing Volume III, Digital Photo-microscopy, into topical downloads of reasonable size is also progressing, albeit slowly, due to the Volume's size (~200pp.) and its large graphic content. The digital camera and photography potions, at least, should be available by mid-December.

A proper Index to all the various download files is still needed and, hopefully, will be in-place by year end.

Efforts to establish a companion Website are continuing and a URL has already been obtained. The next step will be to choose a hosting service.

I thank you for your patience as efforts continue to mold this site into a useful form!
