Not had a clear day here for more than 3 weeks, so being rather bored I decided to buy a small study set of meteorites. I found it very interesting looking up the stories of how they were found and classified. I never thought I would have pieces of the Moon, Mars and 4Vesta in my hand. I decided to buy a small digital microscope for a closer look. I could only get a 2 mp scope but I was wowed with the views that popped up on my computer screen. The only problem was , like buying a beginners telescope, the stand that came with the microscope was only a degree above being useless. On to Amazon and I got a much better retort stand. Now I am completely hooked on meteorite collection and my bank balance is starting to groan.
