I used Nikon d610 + Raynox DCR 150 + Nikon LU Plan BD 100x NA 0,80 + 2 flases + Mjkzz rail. The corners are ok-ish with this setup, only cropped to remove the banding from alignment (at this magnification the frame moves all over the place with my setup). The rail goes down to 0,3um step size but it...

Was this a fresh specimen or long dead?
It has to be dead for some time to get that look.

Thank you for the replies, I have a Mitty BD and an older Nikon BD type objective like in that post but they all have in common a ring on the body that has better grip so you can grab and turn to disassembly. This LU plan doesn't have this, which makes me wonder if the exterior can be removed, glued...

Thank you for your replies, I have and tried the Raynox 250mm as a tube lens but the whole setup was kinda flimsy (I had to improvise a lot regarding the adapters and extension tubes) so the results wasn't that good. That's why I was looking for a sturdier plug and play solution :D. About the DCR 25...

Thank you for the reply. It makes perfect sense, I thought of something similar but unfortunately for me it means I have to change everything, so I was hoping for some sort of hidden trick :D. I use a single studio flash which lights from above the subject into a horizontal paper, tunnel like diffus...
