Thanks Chris,

So much to learn around the naming of the various parts, I had thought Gammarus but that was without using the wizard. Time for some brushing up since Still getting used to the taxonomic keys, I understand bacteria far more)(not that you can really do an I'd on bacteria visually).

Looks incredible, this is one of the things I am trying to get set up on my microscope to basically automate the stitching process by setting the top left and bottom right positions and getting it to run through and capture images bit by bit. Doing it by hand would be a nightmare. Lower resolution, ...

Identification of water bug?

Hi All, I am hoping someone might be able to help me with an ID, this came from a 1940's pathology slide collection but the writing on the slide is illegible so I could not work out exactly what it was. Appears like it came from rockpools but that is about the extent of what i know of this one :(. h...

Four component microscope setup

Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has created or used anything like the four component microscope set up on the link below. It has an objective, tube lens, extension tube and camera. This is exactly what I am looking for with my CNC system, but after some more feedback on how people have found these ...

Thanks Pau, I am thinking using something like a DIY tube microscope rather than an ebay special would be better. My biggest issue with the images is that I am talking about capturing a significant number of images. I will be less likely to use microscope slides on this setup and more likely to use ...

CNC Microscope Setup

Hi All, I have been away and quiet for a bit, but getting back into the swing of things and now look towards doing a bit more microscopy and getting my system set up properly and reliably. I did collect images with a Nikon D5300 DSLR, which was connected to the trinocular port and had an attached st...

Thanks for all the insightful feedback, I have been doing a heap of PLM work looking at birefringence so really enjoying the microscopy work. I do cheat in terms of using software assistance (Helicon Focus), so the sony and olly's are out since they are not supported. At the moment the software only...

Thanks for the great advice, In my setup I would not be using a flash so that should be no major issue. I will do some searching for the T3i :).

Thanks Charles,

Is it any Canon Rebel body that has EFSC that would essentially be suitable (assuming software compatibility) or just a specific subset within the rebel line?

Thanks all,

I use Helicon remote, so one of the big things is maintaining compatibility with that software which limits the choices a bit.

The biggest thing is cost consideration, I would love to look at the D500, or D810 but they are outside of the budget for me. I can set up the mirror delay and so on, so although vibration is a concern it is not a huge one for me at this stage. I am mostly working at 4x - 20x, using a Radical RXL-4T...

does not have to be nikon but easier since i already have the adapters. For software compatibility though needs to be one of these: Canon: 1D X Mk II, 1D Mark III, 1Ds Mark III, 1D Mark IV, 1D C, 1D X, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 5D Mark IV, 6D, 7D, 7D Mark II, 40D, 50D, 5DS, 5DS R (5DSR), 60D, 70D, 80...
