Post by RogelioMoreno »

Here recent images:

1 and 2 Loxophyllum.

4 and 5 Naupliar

All with Nikon TE300 microscope, Plan Apo 20x/0.75 objective, DIC, flash and Canon T3i mounted on the TE300 front port (2x).

Rogelio,

Stunning images and lighting. I particularly like the first three images and the first one has particularly nice orientation.

Amazing images. I have never seen a Stylonychia in such detail. The polarizing effect even lights up some of the particles.

Rogelio,

Beautiful images!! :shock:

I'm presuming some of the reason you are able to get such stunning clarity across nearly the entire surface, is the fact that the organisms are more or less flat against the bottom of the dish. Since you are using DIC, plastic petri dishes are probably out. Are you using glass dishes, slides, or inverted slides with the coverslip on the bottom to eliminate the effect of the thick glass? I'm guessing inverted slides.

Super pictures, the resolution of the microfilaments in the first two is astonishing, really what we used to call 'research grade' in the lab. :D

I am using coverslip for both sides, the stage on inverted move in both direction together with what you put on it (on upright the stage move in one direction together with the slide, the other direction only move the slide).

Thank you for your comments.

I am also amazed that I got that extrusomes so detailed, the kineties can be seen too.
