From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up-Nachtigall's book is not an introductory text for novices. He explains everything readers need to know about microscopes, but beginners anxious to try one out for the first time may lack the patience to plow through more than 70 pages of information on the equipment itself before doing any observing. In frequently technical terms, the author explains the different features available on microscopes, what each part does, and how to select and upgrade equipment, and provides a list of manufacturers and suppliers. An extensive section on optics covers properties of lenses, optical geometry, and the path of a light ray through a microscope. The section dealing with illumination includes tips on photomicrography (taking photographs through a microscope) and using super-8 cameras and camcorders to record through microscopes. After instructions on measuring and drawing images comes the part on preparing specimens for viewing and observing plants, animals, and aquatic microorganisms. With writing that is precise and clear, but hardly scintillating, and excellent-quality full-color diagrams and photos, this book will be perfect for advanced hobbyists or high school students involved in science projects.
