This episode of "Cool Stuff Under the Microscope" focuses on Activated Carbon, which is a compound used for many different purposes, it can be used for air sampling to collect chemicals for later analysis, or alternatively can be used in filtration to absorb chemicals removing them from the environment be it water, air or otherwise.The following image was taken using a Radical Microscope (Details Here), and the images were captured using a Nikon D5300 Digital Camera. Again because the depth of field is so shallow the image was focus stacked in order to maximize the depth of field.Got any idea's on other things I should

I love microscopy, I think there are so many cool things around in everyday life that seem fairly simple at first glance but when you get the opportunity to look at them in greater detail they just look so different to what you would typically expect.Since I have now set up, I wanted to give myself a challenge to image different everyday objects under the microscope and see what they look like. Today's item was fairly simple Epsom Salt which is chemically known as Magnesium sulfate (MgSo4).These images for the most part are taken by dark-field optical microscopy, and since the depth of field is
