I'm an curious kind of guy and I want to see what my SR's edge looks like at various stages of life. What is the recommended scope for this. I see @Mark uses a 500x... My son has a $30 jobby and it is pretty useless at 60x, let alone at the 200x it is supposed to be good for. I prefer to buy the right gear from the start rather than buy a cheap one that will "get me going" and be replaced later on.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks all.
Thing is my son as two microscopes that were about $30 each (one was mine when I was a kid, and a modern one from the Australian Geographic Shop) and they are both pretty useless. I'm after a quality image, not so much a high magnification.
I don't suppose you could give me link to the ones you have bought?
Here is one I found yesterday. I am hoping the high price means high quality image but not necessarily.
