I like checking small things, wondering if there's germs or anything small wondering about. I was thinking of a microscope. Where could I get one?

What kind of micros would you recommend?

That is an extremely old TEM.

Any sort of microscope that allows you to see cells is going to be tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.

There is always UCLA and USC.

There probably isn't going to be enough contrast to see the cells clearly unless you stain them. You should check into that as well.
