Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Microscopy

I’m still playing with the microscope – here are some pics of a hedgehog spike, showing the ‘business’ end, the root end and the shaft. The depth of field is not very good, but you can see the structure well enough, and can see how sharp the end of the spike is – sharper than a needle point.

I’m not sure what magnification the pics are at, as the camera ocular does not give any magnification data.
