New scope!

I just got my new oscilloscope in the mail today! Note to others who might buy this scope, it is a Rigol DS1052E that I got for Christmas and it was purchased from DealExtreme. Apparently they ship the Chinese version, so it came with the Chinese power cord and the menus were all in Chinese. Thankfully I had spare PC power cables I could use, and setting the menu language to English wasn’t too bad as the knobs and buttons are in English and the main menu had just enough English to get to the language select. One thing that DE did that was nice was they added a “gift” note to the box (for only $0.01 extra!) to save me from duty fees, I guess. Thanks DE!

I haven’t used it much yet, but the first photo might give a glimpse into one of my current projects.

(Also, sorry to the photographers out there for the poor lighting in these shots; I took them late at night and was a bit lazy in setting up lighting.)
