Initial design







Because I wanted to use the ITL200 on the microscope also, went towards more universal solution (Ray, thank you very much for the illuminator and sorry for the cruel surgery Smile )



Camera version





Microscope version (could be used with the turret version with shorter objectives), kind a Optiphot infinity conversion



Objective dovetail adapter



ITL200 can be easily swapped between both versions (if needed)

Hi Saul,

Whats the black objective again? Motec?

Don't forget, large end towards the objective, or large end downwards for best results.

Hello Saul,
Thank you for sharing!
I'm thinking about using of the step up ring 38mm-52mm but the most of them have the thread 38x0.75mm but not 0.50mm Sad
Do you have any idea?
Thank you in advance.
Best regards,
ADi

Hi ADi,

When I had Nikon MXA20696 and no 3D printing was available for me - very succesfully used M42 extension tube and few layers of the black electrical tape. Initially I made it for testing purposes, but it served for the rest of the time ... For one end (do not remember, it was for Morfanon or Nikon20696) you could use piece of the orange Walgreen's medicine pills vial, fits perfectly between tube lens and M42 extension ring.

Hi ADi,

FYi, There is a DIY trick if you have a spare Sigma LSA. You can unscrew the retainer ring and remove the glass and mount the ITL200 or MXA20696 in both normal and reverse. The retainer screws back in and holds the lens firmly in place. If I remember correctly it only grabs a few threads so be careful.

Here I have the Mitutoyo tube lens set-up the same way:






Also RAF camera does have a38mm x 0.5 to M42/M52 adapter.

Found it:

Hope this helps.

Robert
