    Thanks for sharing. A few comments:
    1) can you describe some context of where did this sample come from? Is this pond water at Venky college. It occurred to me; that we never took a picture of that pond – would anyone share that?

    2) on a more technical side – I see that some of your images are not in perfect focus. Please take a look at the video tutorials on this website here, specially video 4. I expect great things from all of you – and the best way for you to improve your skills is to watch the tutorial videos carefully and post your next entry; and I can try to debug where the focus issue is coming from..


    Keep exploring.

      Thanks for your valuable comments.
      Yes, the sample is from pond water at Venky college during the workshop.
      I shared the pictures from beginning to the end. I was having trouble focusing the images initially but now I am able to do so. Soon will share more focused and different kind of images.

    @Snehkesari: Looking forward to more data/images/insights from you. Please share the microcosmos of Delhi – and share your tool with people around you.

    Keep exploring

    @Manu: I already have shared the microscope among my colleagues… they are all exited about using it.
    BTW When are you coming to Delhi? I am trying to contact your team but not able to…

    @Snehkesari: The team has already left; some of them are in remote parts of North East and others are traveling/away for Christmas. Share your explorations here and we will all be able to see and answer your questions.. Can’t wait to see your next post..

    @Snehkesari: That well near Venky college is a treasure trove. During the sample collection, we realized that a systematic survey of the well was in order. Starting from the walls, one could sample the well at various depths… At the very bottom, we have a pleasant surprise for the explorers who reach there first 🙂

    @Manu Ptrakash The workshop at Venky was extremely useful. A govt school teacher asked me about the battery (I know it is very cheap) but just to test battery life (and to prove it actually ) I have kept it ON continuously since the workshop day and it is still bright.

    BTW Tomorrow I am going to Okhla area to collect some samples.

    @Manu Prakash I dont have a life sciences background. In fact there several people like me. It would be great if a 30 page booklet is provided so that everyone has a basic idea of what can be seen, generally, using the fodscope and what are they actually – in very brief. Many students dont have access to internet and camera so such booklets will be highly useful for them.
