Early Days of the Microscope

Illustrated presentation on the images observed by the pioneering microscopists.

"The first microscopes provided images of poor quality, and it is hard to imagine how discoveries were made." Today we will see that this widespread view is mistaken. The single lensed microscope reigned from the mid 1600s-1800s, and new research reveals that the images that can be obtained are astonishingly clear. We will look at recreations of the discoveries made by luminaries including Leeuwenhoek and Robert Brown.
