A variety of pics from my first 'serious' photo session with the new setup. No stacking here, just more practice and fiddling with the oblique patch.

Small clover, 2x obj


I never realised the complexity of a clover:


First remotely decent 40x pic (well, more like 500x or so into the sensor, yes I'll need to use Charles' tips on measuring..)




Liked the colours in this one:



Apple, 40x obj, you can see the fibres of the flesh. Gawd, I feel so ignorant compared to you biologists!

Thanks. I don't know what NOT to try, it's so satisfying. I gotta drive a couple of Kays and get some ocean samples. Or just swab my sneakers..

Simon,

I strongly encourage everyone to play around with oblique illumination. The specimens you show here are very thick, and have great contrast by themselves. You will see a difference from "straight" brightfield, but it may not be that significant. The real value from oblique comes more when you work with subjects that are thinner, relatively "clear", and have a refractive index closer to the medium where they exist. You will see this if/when you get into the tiny water critters.
