It's a really helpful 60-100x magnifier with LED, It's really helpful and could find any bad things on your buds.
your Bud could be saved if you trim out small affected areas either bud/plant, If you happen to have alot of mold on your buds, throw away the moldy ones and search the buds on the plant and try to cut out the affected areas because mold can spread like a wild fire. But i would recommend throwing it away if it has mold,it's really toxic to inhale and can cause problems.

I read that, when cured, ammonia smell is sign of mold... Could I have moldy buds? and ifso.. is it unsalvageable.. I'm still about 2 weeks from harvest.
Strange, those look very healthy. Look INSIDE the bud - if you see a whitish mass, kind of like dust or a tight mass of webs, it's mold. But usually, the bud shows deterioration, hairs shriveling, etc.
I have read of one strain that smell like cat piss, nobody liked it for that reason, but can't remember what the strain was.
When you are curing, that ammonia smell is a sure sign you haven't dried enough before curing. This can be reversed; open it up, air it out, then go back to curing when the smell dissipates.
But you say you're two weeks from harvest... do all the buds smell that way? Little popcorn buds on the bottom as well?

Yus, But only from touching it. The smell is only ever noticeable after squeezing a bud & smelling the stickyness. Its not like this smell is wafting off the plants.
I recently purchased that same pocket microscope.

I think I got a thread we did on drying and curing too, will see if I can find it.
