I bought another new microscope for studying mycelium on the surface of agar in petri dishes, but unfortunately my high resolution microscope camera won't work with it, so I'm stuck taking pictures with the cheapie dv camera from another scope. It really doesn't do justice at all compared to what can be seen through the lenses, but hopefully you can get the idea. As you can see, mushroom metabolyte is clear, not yellow. Sometimes you see it as a yellowish color, but I believe that's because it runs down through the brf or other grains and picks up the color that way. When first exuded from the mycelium, it's crystal clear, with mycelium running through it. None of these pimordia or metabolyte 'drops' are more than 1 mm in length or width, having just begun to form on the surface of a petri dish. Redboy strain. Enjoy.

Cool pics!!!!
I would agree that the metabolytes are picking up color from the substrates. Foaf has a glass jar of wood chips colonized cyan myc. All the liquid that has accumulated over the last year is clear because there is no color leeching out of the wood chips and there is no soil/manure/brf/etc.

Oh rodger, great pics!!! I was just admiring my primordia forming on my casings today. I really like the agar shots of it! And I always was thinking it was the casing or substrate causing the mycelium to take on that tannish color when forming primordia.
And nice to see the red boy at its early stage of growth. Thanks for sharing!

:lol: Yeah! Hey rodger since we are almost neighbors maybe I could come over and play with some of your cool toys. Promise I won't break any!:lol:
Very cool pics! What type of mscope is that? I imagine it has a different type of light source coming from the top side.

It's this scope http://www.microscop...m/Achiever.html, and this camera http://www.microscop...om/MiniVID.html. The camera slips into one of the eyepieces. Unfortunately, the camera only captures about 25% of the field of vision.

and that camera is tres cool did you get USB2.0 or RCA?
Why does it only cover 25% of the viewing space?

USB. It's just a cheap camera. Cheap scope too, but it's all you need for seeing the top of petri dishes. It's not for observing clamp connections or spores. I have a good camera too for the other scopes, the 3M from this page http://www.microscop...om/XLI_23M.html but it requires the C-mount which is not available on that microscope.
