Notice the bean like structures, maybe they are like stomatas? (for the above)
Notice the stomata to the right & about in the middle. (for the above)
Mango DNA strand 400x Celestron
- lichen branch Miscope ~50x
We are not sure what the egg looking thing is. We’ll look at more klong water again.
The klongs here in Bangkok are very interesting because they change color, change the direction of the water flows, & the amount of stuff that is in them. We took a mini trip to nearby klong & got a bucket of water & some small plants. Here is a sample of 2 critters on a small leaf. I tried to download the video but it won’t take the download. Sorry.
Maybe this is a fairy shrimp. Miscope 40x
The picture above is of a bar-b-que potato chip with added water under the Celestron at 40x. This group of students is very interested in food!
The picture above & below are of liquid yoghurt taken with the Celestron at 400x.
These 3 pictures are taken with the Miscope (the 1st & 3rd pictures are at ~130x, the second is at ~45x) . All of them are of moldy guava fruit.
The very last picture is moldy edam cheese using the Celestron at 40x.
Edam cheese mold 40x
Alum crystals above: with Miscope ~41x Epson salt crystals above: with Miscope ~41
The blue crystals are ones that a student brought in so we don’t know what kind they are. The peach crystals are some that we grew here in class towards the beginning of the year – they are magnesium sulfate crystals.
Orange cattlaya flower under Miscope ~130x
Pine tree needle section Miscope ~120x.
Seaweed under Miscope ~135x
Som Oh fruit cross section under the skin. Miscope ~130x
Som Oh fruit dried skin on the outside. Miscope ~105x
All of these lower slides are using the miscope.
#2 shows more of the cell structure of the yellow flower in slide #2 (~42x). #3 shows more of the large details of this lovely yellow flower (~42x). I’ll try to find out the name of the plant later.
#4 is the outside of an Aloe vera plant leaf. under the micscope (~100x).
The slide and the video were taken at 100x. The students were so excited when they found it! In my class we have a tub of old klong water with what is left of some of the plants the students brought in earlier. One of the boys put a decomposing leaf on a slide & found the worm.
I’ll add to these Miscope photos to show you the whole outside a bamboo stock later.
Thai baht comes in denominations of 2o, 50, 100, 500, & 1000 baht bills. The money is very colorful & each bill is a different size. All bills have a picture of the king on the front.
The students had fun with the Miscope on this & finding the place where they wanted to take the picture.
- banana leaf in different views
Banana flowers are vary cool looking. We will try to get one & add to the blog.

A variety of food is often cooked here in banana leaves! The leaves do give the food a little added flavor – I like it. The leaves are used like plates too.
We believe the larger one is the male & the slightly smaller one is the female.
It looks like you are looking up through trees.
They look beautiful. 100x magnification.
