Hi Greg, until I have enough experience with observing compost tea under the "scope", I feel most comfortable referring you to Tim Wilson at Microbe Organics. He has mastered the art of compost tea under the microscope. He has designed a set of microscope filters that cater specifically to compost tea observation. I'm actually planning to purchase my microscope from him within the next couple months. I am also hoping to work out a partnership with him to offer CompostJunkie members a discount on his products. Stay tuned...

That was a year and a half ago. Didja get an answer?
