Submitted by Charles Krebs...



Here's a picture of how I have set my scopes up to do photomicrography with a digital SLR (Canon 10D). It's pretty near identical to the way it's been done for years with film SLR's. The camera is mounted on a stand above the microscope, with no physical contact between camera and microscope.

I've put together a "personal web page" that describes most of my set-up. It's still pretty basic, but has much more info than I could put in a message.

It can be accessed here:

This is awesome! The bellows solution is so much more simple and flexible than the interesting assembly of pvc tubes i rigged up a few years ago when when i mounted a really old canon ftql to a 1960's scope (at least it matched the age of the camera). But, i didn't have access to any plan objectives, was using no flash. Ended up being something like a 20 second exposure...it was interesting and fun tho.

Anyway ... I've got most of these parts laying around and am looking to buy a Canon 350d sometime...

A few questions. Any instructions on making the variable controller for the Vivitar? How about the mouse/remote release?

Lemme know!

Drool!
This is my very first post since joining. And I want to thank you Charles for replying to some of my questions off site. I'm still searching for your recommendations on objectives. I'm gathering equipment terminally slowly but it does take time. So far I have been shooting with a Nikon D3100 & Nikor 60mm AF-S ED Macro with very nice results. I recently picked up a Canon Rebel T3i which I attached to my old trusty Zeiss DRC stereo scope. Wow! what a breeze it is using the EOS utility. My first stack from Zerenne was a very good quality picture given my inexperience, but Zerenne makes it pretty easy even for a newbie.

On the lead of someone from this forum I shopped for and found a nice Z-axis stage with 3mm of vertical travel using a micrometer that moves the stage microns at a time, I believe one rotation of the micrometer is 50 microns. Haven't got it in yet. Check Ebay here:

He has 4 more, I bid him down to $130, I think he might go lower. This will work well with my stereo scope base since I shoot pics of teeny tiny rock chips that never move. Still can't wait to find the right objective for sale!!

Cheers,

Doug

Sirs, here is my solution, I use fixed stuff instead of bellows.

The result is also good.

Nice set up. Are you using the bellows to achieve greater magnification or merely to replace a lens system between the phototube and camera to have the image correctly on the sensor? I use a diagnostic instruments system.

That Zeiss Neofluor 63 is a great lens, I almost exclusively used it for several years research work. But I didn't own it LOL!
