Is this the microscope I want?

Copy on lights. I decided for the China garbage $45 ring light (amscope) and if I need better I'll upgrade it.

I just don't do enough soldering to go balls out on this stuff. I do enough with small parts, but I'm a programmer first.

I put together an Amscope kit and the Aliexpress camera.

Amscope and eakins orders attached for reference to anyone else looking.

Eakins Sony IMX307 Autofocus, uses a C-mount to Amscope CX adapter (.45x, although 1.0x might work, the Chinese sell theirs with a .5x)

The microscope I picked up is the latest model SM745NTP-B.

Warning: If you are trying to buy a kit like this link, be careful that they consider the microscope itself to be ~$150, and the shapes and lines around the monocular are different than the Amscope.

I decided to go with the dual boom, amscope everything, IMX307 camera. There is a chance the above kit would have been fine, and would have been more cost effective, but I didn't want to deal with Aliexpress/Alibaba if it wasn't. I'd rather deal with Amscope. I also got a 15% coupon from Amscope, their 4th of July sale... Which is funny as an American holiday. I don't like buying Chinese equipment, but in this case it was this or nothing.

I doubt I'll need to update given the other reviews I've seen, I'm sure it'll work just fine.

A microscope is the absolute basics. The camera is optional.

A bit more fancy would be a Mantis and/or a Leica microscope.
