That's impressive! Stuck to the underside of a coverslip?
What objective is that, Waldo?

Well, between the slide and a coverslip yes. I did use a small trick - I did not use water between the slip and slide, I used immersion oil. That worked better with the scales as these scales are hydrophobic.

It is the Olympus UPLSAPO100XO;U PLAN S-APO 100X OIL OBJ, NA 1.40 and of course the oil condenser.

Very nice!
Thanks for mentioning your oil "trick".

Excellent. The detail in the first and last shots is exceptional for a conventional light microscope.
