    I went on craigslist.com and serched "microscope"....came up with a damn good bushnell for five bucks. I couldn't find one a radioshack...but you will need a microscope...magnifying glass won't do the trick. Good luck

    I just got one of the RadioShack Mini-Microscopes and must warn you that it's quite difficult to see anything without squishing it down on your buds. I would not buy it again and would return it if the bottom wasn't coated with trich heads.
    I think I'd look in a hobby shop for a reasonably priced one. Lots of hobbies require magnification. Look at ours!
    Jeweler's Loupes will afford you a good glimpse and don't cost a fortune . . . you probably won't be able to clearly see the trichs maturity with a loupe. 30X or higher.

    I have found that by taking a pair of binoculars turning them backwards and looking at the plant produces usable results in a pinch, you will need to look at it fairly close but it works. I use a 50x pair and I can see the trichomes fairly well... this is until I can clean my old microscope

    you will need something that will give you 30x magnification or better if you want a good look, you can get a magnifying glass that will do that or a jewlers glass i think they are called a loupe
