|Posted: Sat Nov 25, 2017 4:09 pm Post subject: First Shot with 4x Objective
|I finally got all of my gear:
- Amscope 4x finite objective
- EOS to M42 adapter
- RMS to EOS adapter
- two sets of M42 extension tubes
The subject is a little worse for wear, but I'm extremely happy with the results.
I had to abort my initial stack since it was completely washed out. Using a Minolta 50mm manual reversed onto two sets of extension tubes steals so much light that I have to set my manual flashes to 1/32 power. With the objective I can back that off to 1/128th power, and can probably move the flashes farther away. I didn't bother with diffusion for this first shot.
I really like this Amscope objective.
