THE QUICK AND EASY VERSION....
The simplest micrograph uses a 250mL conical flask,
upside down, and resting over the eyepiece. A piece of frosted
(translucent) plastic or tracing paper covers the "bottom" of the flask
and is held in place by a rubber band. This forms a viewing screen.
The other type requires the construction of a light
weight wooden box mounted on legs. A hole is cut in the bottom of the
box so that the box will fit over the eye piece of the microscope. A
hole is cut in the top of the box and a piece of frosted glass is used
to cover the hole. This becomes the viewing screen.
USING A MICROGRAPH
With either type, the image can be focused by turning
the focusing knob on the microscope.
For a permanent record of your observations, place a
sheet of tracing paper over the viewing screen. You should be able to
see the object through the paper and trace it. For best results, use
the micrograph in a darkened room.
Things you could make drawings of include legs of
various insects like a bee, fly or grasshopper. What about the mouth
parts or eyes? Perhaps you could make a work of art using water
colours, charcoal, or crayon.
