Microscope of choice for trichomes?

What microscopes do you guys prefer for checking trichomes? I bought a digital usb microscope but it fkng glitches too much. When you get the right zoom setting you can see them clearly but the thing keeps bugging out and stops working then won’t even let me turn it off. I have to let the battery die reboot itself for it to work again.

This is the one I have. Works well if you take a small sample off a bud and view on a table. It’s a 60x/120x zoom

Try another brand I have a cheap one that works fine, I like viewing it from my CP monitor instead of from a vulture neck view through a tiny lens (I have one of them too).

I have a cheap USB microscope from ebay that plugs in to my phone. Easy to take photos and has a built in light for clarity.

Here’s a screenshot from ebay and a photo taken with it.


I got this one and love it. Tells me what I Need to know. Worth every dollar for me.
