Beautiful images Rogelio. It seems you have found the perfect microscope/camera combination. Do you find the inverted scope easier to use than an upright?

The upright is easier with oil objectives.
With dry objectives the inverted gives you:

- The option to turn upside down the coverslip set (I use a coverslip as slide and then cover it with another coverslip) when the subject is to deep in the water.

- In some cases the detritus or other particulates float so they move to the top leaving the bottom more clear.

- Charles found that gravity help to keep the specimen closer to the bottom coverslip, so less water between the bottom coverslip and the subject.

Thank you for your comments.
