Dark was the night and the date slipped over to the next. The wind howled as the critters froze under the million eyes of the crisp “Thanksgiving sky”. But we were undeterred and bravely sneaked to the box, while the others slept in fear of the dark.
Assembling the foldscope was a breeze, in spite of the clumsy elder of the two of us. For every turn that was to be done one way, he turned it the other and kept insisting that he wanted to do it himself, but the new foldscope was clumsy-proof. The only difficult part was fixing the magnet to the phone as the phone kept rejecting the magnet’s advances, but we used more tape to secure the two and examined the prepared slides. What a brilliant view of the fern rhizome cross-section. We then played with projection and pulled out the old cardboard projection box. The rest the following video will explain. Happy thanksgiving. Thank you Manu, Thank you Jim. Thank you foldscope team.
