I’m trying out the AD409 microscope from Andonstar (https://amzn.to/3McqKtl or https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/_AtThvb). This is a great bit of kit with a nice big screen so you can really see what you are doing.

It’s just a shame that my soldering is so terrible! But, as they say, “practice makes perfect” so hopefully, I’ll get better over time…

You can buy the microscope I’m using here (affiliate links):

Amazon: https://amzn.to/3McqKtl AliExpress: https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/_AtThvb

They have plenty of other options available to suit various price points.
