My first post… Greetings from Japan!

  I’ve successfully assembled my first Foldscope. Honomi’s instruction video was really helpful. Thanks! はじめてのフォールドスコープ、無事に組み立てられました。組み立てのガイド動画がとてもわかりやすかった。(英語ですが、言葉がわからない人でも大丈夫だと思います!) Sayaka

Observed the head and tail part of zebrafish

In the tail region we can see the vertebral arrangement along with the caudal fin. Eyes are the first thing to be observerd, they are mezmerizing. The fries were of 72 hrs when observed.

Elodea plant cell

This Elodea leaf cell exemplifies a typical plant cell. It has a nucleus, and a stiff cell wall which gives the cell its box-like shape. The numerous green chloroplasts allow the cell to make its own food (by photosynthesis). The central vacuole takes up most of the volume of the cell. It is transparent, but…
