Hi all,

I found a thread where Arturo was using a piece of glass at 45 degrees over the light port at the base of his microscope, so he could both use the microscope's light as a pilot and direct the burst of the flash 45 degrees upwards.

I have been learning how to use my Sunpak 322 (lovely) which can lay flat over the base and tilt the flash head up.

This works great for static subjects, but its tricky for those moments when the stuff being observed refuses to stand still :-) and where I could find the "decisive moment" (forgive me Henri) through the eyepiece.

I've been googling glass / mirror (e.g., edmundoptics) that does what Augusto said, but got quite confused as to what I really need...

Can someone very kind help me?

tx!

mike
