What devices are recommended to look at trichomes,what magnification is the minimum/optimal to see the trichomes?
Recently seen a post in a thread here and it didn't even occur to me(beginner here) that i would need one. Yeah sure you could say i don't really need one but i want to get every info available to get the best out the plants.

pretty much any usb microscope will do.
Simple magnifying glasses work too but it's hard to make out.
You can even try a phone camera but you need a steady hand,

10x magnification is close to optimal.

If you already own a DSLR or EVIL camera you can get a cheap manual focus 55mm lens and an adapter to reverse mount it.
This way you can do super macro shots that rival 4 figure macro lenses.

circlejerk said use a loupe instead of a microscope. I've tried a microscope and the problem is it's not really good when the object is moving or your hand is moving, since getting a clear image is based on the focus distance or whatever.

Of course.
It all depends how perfectionist you are. To just get a rough idea of when to chop them a loupe is fine.
If you want to determine the clear/cloudy/amber ratio accurately buy counting them you can of course snip of a small piece of bud and examine that under whatever camera rig you've got.
