Hi Saul,
Great job!
Question: what about the backlash caused by velcro ?
Best ADi
Thanks Adalbert !
Did not notice any, but please keep in mind - I'm using it in vertical setups only with microscopes or their blocks .

Really great info, Saul! Thanks so much for posting all the detailed info you provide. Us beginners appreciate it.

On the velcro comment, did you mean "forgiving" instead of "forgettable"?

Thanks Russ, you are correct, my English is not a "greatest" :)

...My current LED illumination is not strong enough, so I had to use the exposure time of 2 seconds ...
Why 2s is wrong ?
My optimal exposure time is 4-5s (I know, that lot of guys are using even longer exposure), even at high magnification.

@Saul: Thanks for the hint - looks obvious now.
Also, thanks for the tutorial link. I had no problem seeing the cross-eyed 3D image in the 2nd video. But try as I might, it still doesn't work with forum images...
Did you try different distances ?
