Bad News: There’s something wrong with one of the microscope lenses or mirrors (not sure which one) that projects reflections of the specimen on the slide (i might be able to upload a picture). However, it doesn’t obstruct all view and it’s restricted to only one position.
Good News: The rest of the microscope is still functional. Also, I just made a new slide with lots of interestsing things on it…you can expect pictures some time this week if the slide survives (I have a whole jar of the stuff I got the specimen from, so even if the slide itself has problems, I can always make another one!).
