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...

Being a organic farming agent. I have come to know the latest developments launched by the experts. Tom,. In his book, has written the possibilities of suing microscope while composting tea. You can actually decide the intensity of the light to pass through.
