Exactly! Smile

Even though I'm still saving the coin Pico is the best but everytime I think I've got the money something else comes up, this month some serious ramp maintenance. Having said that I use an old Fluke (badged by Bosch) 2 channel hand held scope and it has served me well for many years. You might pick one of those up second hand but ONLY if it's cheap enough to let you continue saving for a Pico! Go on a Pico course if you get the chance. I did and it sold me on it completely.

Often you can buy a package including the scope, and a course on how to use it and general scoping technique.

You will probably have to travel.

They run the courses around the country but only in fairly major cities.If you look on the Pico website it gives a list of upcoming ones. I think mine cost around £200 but they gave you lunch and a framed certificate! Smile

To be fair although the course sold me on how good the Pico is it does also give you a good grounding in scoping techniques in general.

Might get shot for mentioning this but Technical Topics cover scope courses and can supply Pico scopes and accessories, maybe worth a Google.

Would rather be playing pool.

We did the Bosch course and it gave us the head start needed but after that the best way to learn is to scope scope scope.
