Advertisement I bought this microscope and got it just today. It cost me $40 on Amazon, and it is already worth every penny. Literally the first picture I took on the thing was sexing a 1.5" B. smithi, and it took about 45 seconds to get a confirmed sex. A handheld jeweler's microscope is around $10 - just make the plunge to this. Now, it's not for photographers. Colors are very muted and it's only 1280x720 resolution. But it's absolutely perfect for sexing small slings and just getting a good look at things. Look at some of these pictures, this thing's amazing.
