Damian used his renovated Lomo Biolam microscope to view the small organisms we found in our recent trip to Branston water park and cheek cells we collected from his mouth and stained with H&E staining on 2/2/2018.

X90 objective. All these images taken afocally from one side of the binoviewer on the Lomo, using hand-held Samsung S7 phone through x10 ocular and objective mentioned. There is also 1.5x multiplication effect from the binoviewer.

Therefore the magnification on image below with x90 objective = 10 x 90 x 1.5 = 1350 x. Contrast and brightness tweaked in the image editor on the Samsung S7 phone – no other processing:

The following photos are all with x10 objective, otherwise as above. They are of organisms from Branston water park:
