i found this recently
The stuff on that chart matures pretty dam fast...wow!
7 weeks maybe, but i like to go at least 8 weeks.
Yes I recommend reading the resin with a 30 x micro-scope,i like to wait until I see at least 10% amber heads....with no heads missing

Not posting the pic yourself anymore anony? Haha I'll post it up...
If you want to go by hairs, thats a good chart, however to tell each section properly, you should google image search "trichome chart" and "radio shack microscope" its 100x and only $10.00.

my plants are almost 100% covered in red hairs, i was going to harvest a few days ago but was advised to look thru some binoculars backwards at the crystals on my plant.
i was looking for a couch lock stoned and this would mean amber crystals, however all the crystals were either milky or clear which means i would have lost out if id have harvested when i originally planned.
not to mention the extra yeild that is growing
the hairs are a good guideline but if you want a precise way to know exactly when is the right time for you, then the trichomes are definately the best way to tell.

Not even close man. Looks to me like youre about half way.

They have a 15x jewelers loupe @ radio shack for about $8 - and that's what I use. Anything over 10x is more than sufficient to see trich color easily over a much wider area, and you don't have to rub a microscope all over your buds to get a clear picture of the trichomes.
Harvest by the number of red/amber trichs - personally I like to pick them @ 50/50. Although yours look like they have a while to go still - some strains, like White Widow, should be harvested when hairs are still nearly all white. Trichs are really the only way to tell.
Some folks who don't use microscopes wait until their plants look sand-covered rather than sugar-coated...

from the pic you posted, your bud has quite a ways to go as in weeks.

Here's 2 pics of the same plant at 8 weeks of 12/12 light. It's hard to tell from the photos, but under a magnifier, I still only see clear and white trics, no amber color yet. I switched to plain water (no ferts) from now on. The full plant pic reminds me of Side-Show Bob's (The Simpsons) hair-doo.
