Me and my team just learned how to use a microscope. To be able to see the experiments correctly you have to move the object the opposite way. For example, if you want the object to move up you move it down. The lens can be magnifies up to 40x. And there are two knobs that you can turn to adjust the bigger one on the top is for when you move stage up and down and to adjust the object so you can see it better. The second bottom one that have a smaller knob is called the field. You use it for the higher magnify lens like the 40x. So you can see the experiment closer and better.
The compound microscope is easier because it is not the opposite. I like that one better because it doesn't make me dizzy like the other one. However, the zooms and stuff is bad and you need the flashlight for help.
