Dissecting Microscope
Once a variety of insects are collected, Dr. Schuh heads back to the lab to look at them up close. When using a dissecting microscope, the light shines down through the insect. The microscope has two lenses, like binoculars, which allows Dr. Schuh to look at his specimen in 3-D.
