Hi,

 

I have googled a bunch, and much to my surprise I cant seem to find an active microscope forum.  Anyone have any suggestions?  I have found many but they are a couple of posts a week type sites.

There is Microbehunter on YouTube.  His name is Oliver Kim, and he has three other channels.  His videos are well done and he has a substantial following.  You might try these channels, though they aren't a forum in the same way that Cloudy Nights is.

Several good microscopy groups on Facebook. This one gets a lot of traffic:

Those videos have been enormously useful to me.

I'm in and out of this one on a regular basis. A lot of good information posted there, along with some amazing images and videos.

Microbe hunter forum is great. Lots of helpful people to share the hobby with. From my point of view, because of the way info is displayed, a forum is a better place to learn than social media.

I lurk there a lot, but haven't done enough microscopy to actually contribute to discussions.
