Thanks, all, and Tim in particular, and I hope we hear some more.  Your
comment about avoiding built-in cameras is useful, Tim, because there are,
of course, some very inexpensive microscopes with low-res cameras attached
(e.g. for under $200) on eBay.  Lest I be credited with a greater interest
than I have, I personally am not looking for fine opticals or a setup with
which to do excellent photography - I just want something inexpensive (as
in "under $300", not "under $65,000") with which to get a reasonably good
look at small plants, plant bits, and critters.  You know....girls just
wanna have fun, and all that.

Of course, others may well be more serious, so please, people, keep the
info coming.

Many thanks,
