Still playing around with this Nikon Apo Plan 4x NA 0.20. Shot using a Fuji x-t1, nikon pb-6 bellows at ~160mm.

These are digestive glands of Drosera capensis 'red form'. The fact that the trichome stalks are red and semi-transparent makes lighting slightly tricky!

Very nice!
Hard to really judge from this size image but it would appear that the 4X is providing excellent images (as would be expected!)

Thanks Charles! Yes, this appears to be quite a lovely objective, especially brand new for $150!
I'd like to put together some shots for the forum to "test" the objective, but I'm embarrassingly clueless as to the procedure, even when it comes to doing a 100% crop or being able to post the image at the best resolution given the forum size limits. But, I'll keep playing around with it.

Yes it's an ambiguous description!
Simply, crop 1024 pixels wide from your original , unsharpened 5000 x 3500 or whatever-it-was image, and post that onto the forum.
If you make sure the memory it uses is something a bit under the forum limit of 300kB, it should be fine.
The subject does matter - specular highlights and extreme contrast can be misleading, so this image might not be the most appropriate.
