Stentor (images added)

Post by RogelioMoreno »

I found this Stentor in my sample from Miraflores lake.

All with Nikon TE300, 20x/0.75, DIC, flash and Canon T3i mounted on the front port of the TE300 (giving 40x on the sensor).

They are such beautiful creatures, it's too bad they don't have eyes.

Wow! Rogelio, every time I see you photos I think 'this is as good as it gets' and then your next photos are better.

I know that X20, 0.75 has excellent resolving power, but that must be a large Stentor. Super pictures as always.

Rogelio, we're starting to run out of adjectives for how good your pictures are. You've emptied the thesaurus. :lol:

Darius and Bruce,

Thank you very much for your comments. :D

I will post more images showing the complete body and some cell division stage (from another subject).

Rogelio,

your pictures are really great! :lol:
As for your setup - beside the perfect Nikon TE300 microscope - you use flash in addition.
Can you - please - show us your setup and HOW you place/use the flash?Betwwen subjekt and halogen-source (with use of a beamsplitter) or - because of enough "space" in another way?
what is the relationship of the amount of halogen-light and flash?
For all users that work with inverted microscopes that would be interesting...

Thankyou for your guidance..

Christian

Christian,

Thank you for your comments.

On the following link you can see my TE300 with flash:

To use flash I set tha camera to Tv:1/200 with mirror lock up, the halogen lamp is set to the minimum (to reduce the impact on the image).
