I actually found this flea on my dog and thought it would make a good microscope subject. It is a Dog Flea, or Ctenocephalides canis. As seen from the naked eye it is only about the size of a pinhead.
I believe that the magnifications are between 30-40x and 60-70x. The camera mount I used was actually meant to be applied to a telescope, however it fit perfectly over the microscope eyepiece.
