That is correct. I think USPS will take two days to get to you from Humboldt Co. Another gentleman proposed that if you don't take it, he would take me up on the offer, and I replied that I would give you the weekend to decide, so please let me know by tomorrow night- I can ship it Monday if you do...

Tecumseh, I have a StackShot controller I'd be willing to let go for $200. Wil ship for free unless you're overseas. I need to get the 3X controller, so I will have no need for the single output version. Cheers Jacob Jacob, I'm local to you. I'm in San Francisco. So this is just the controller righ...

NikonUser, I know this post is 5 years old. But I have some questions for you. I notice that you have the objective mounted on the PB 6 bellows Did you need full extension of the bellows ? Are you using the same lighting now ? Was this setup used with a Nikon D90 ? Has your setup evolved ? Thanks.

In your personal experience, were there times when you realized that you should've gotten a bigger or smaller size breadboard. I'm in the process of trying to assemble a set-up similar to this one and I would like other people's input as to what size would offer the most configuration. I've seen a ...

I am currently waiting for a Mitutoyo 5x to arrive by post. I have a 4x CFI Plan and also the 10x (pictured above). I bought the former used and the latter new. I'm hoping to sell the 4x for $100 and the 10x for $200. They are both in pristine condition and always kept in their "pill bottle". The 1...

Yes, I do have the PB-6. And I also own a 55-200mm Nikon DX lens for the D90. I was simply trying to replicate the pic on the FAQ's page but with a Nikon instead of Canon. Tecumseh, which picture in the FAQ's do you wish to replicate? Also, would you prefer a 10x objective to use on your bellows, o...

Tecumseh, As you may know, microscope objectives come in two broad types: Finite and infinite. I recall that you have a Nikon PB-6 bellows. You could use finite microscope objectives directly on your bellows without additional optics. Good 10x finite options include the Nikon M Plan 10x/0.25 and (b...

WTB - Nikon Objectives

I'm simply wanting to try doing this type of macro. So any would be good, but preferably the 10X Plan. And accompanying adapters for Nikon lenses.
Thanks for your help.
