I have just discovered the joys of amateur mycology and wish to
purchase my first microscope.  I would like to by a quality
instrument, but will probably need to by a used one in order to afford
it.  I would appreciate any guidance that readers could give me,
particularly  about the features that would be most useful for fungal
identification and where one might find good used microscopes.
