Friend of mine from out west is close to harvesting and was wondering how these were looking. He knows what to look for with the trichome shape and cloudiness / amber color. He thinks he is still another week or so out. Any advice is much appreciated. Pictures are a little blurry and thanks in advance.

I feel those have a good few weeks left, alot of those white hairs should be red/orange.
I wait untill a good 75% have gone from white to orange.
But this is just a general old school way.

Best thing is to invest in a good microscope to see the trichomes are fully ripe

You should always go by trichome maturity rather than visual. You need to use a scope or jewlers loop 40-60x to see them. I harvest at mostly cloudy with 30% amber or so. They make decent ones that hook up to your phone now and can use the camera. Some strains will push out new pistals and some even stay white until you chop amd dry. Always go by visually looking at the trichome heads.

Ok thanks, dp. He was looking into the digital ones. The price range on those is crazy. He uses his camera in the meantime and it works pretty well when he can stay still. 

 

So here in this picture those are pretty much all clear, correct? No cloudiness and definitely no amber coloration.

I always used a jewelers loop, but recently purchased this.

Cool. Saw that one on Amazon when searching. Guess he will break down and get one soon.
