Re: Bresser Microscoop Plano Objectief 4x/0.01 160/-

Can it be used like the Nikon CF N Plan Achromat 10X NA 0.30 objective that is shown in page 1 of this interesting topic I cannot answer the question. Yes, any DIN objective can be used this way to form a focused image. But not all DIN objectives will form a good focused image. That depends on opti...

Bresser Microscoop Plano Objectief 4x/0.01 160/-

This is a Plan achromatic objectif for microcscopes witht the need of DIN oculair (Deutsche Intstitut für Normung).

Can it be used like the Nikon CF N Plan Achromat 10X NA 0.30 objective that is shown in page 1 of this interesting topic.

Re: FAQ: How can I hook a microscope objective to my camera?

[ I am not taking in account the "chipped" adapter that accepts M42x1 threaded optics on the lens side, and presents an interface to the camera. It seems that for Nikon this is less suitable and not really needed. I have read that some Nikon bodies don't meter without a chip while others like D300 ...

How crucial is it to have exactly 150 mm ?
A distance of 146.5mm does not present a problem of relevant concern.

Sylvain, The Beljan has a more refined design and some people prefer the T2 thread; but the RMS to M42 is just as good and more readily available.
