[Celegans] cheap dissectiong scopes

Hi fellow worm breeders --

Does anyone have a suggestion for a cheap dissecting scope (say, $2000 or thereabouts)  that is just good enough for routine maintenance of strains? (i.e, can distinguish L4s and males, light source doesn't fry worms).  I thought maybe those of you who use C. elegans in teaching labs might have suggestions, but I'd love to hear from anyone with a bargain!  We only need to get one scope, so not likely to be able to get companies to demo their products.

I will be happy to summarize any responses I get back, and repost.  Thanks in advance!
