The desmid Micrasterias apiculata - surface and a division

Post by myriophyllum »

Hi,

The Micrasterias apiculata is a nice desmid with a special surface -
lots of stings are covering it.

A selection from above:

(Zeiss Standard 18; Ultracondenser; Planapo 40/0.95; widefield 0.8x; S-Kpl 10x/20; MC63; 4x5" film)

Finally a division:

Image

(like above, but Planapo 25/0.65; Kpl 6.3x/18; 6x9 cm film)

Btw, I still like the large format slides very much. :-)


Your comments are welcome.

Best wishes

Jens

Beautiful DF shots, the last one is a classic!

Of course surprised about your use of medium format film.

Hi,

thank You. I certenly own a good 21 mp digital camera, too.
But my favorite images are mostly taken on film, sometimes
even in B&W on Print-out-paper (some images here:
http://www.mikrographica.de/mikro_02a1.html).

Best wishes

Zeiss MC 63

Post by myriophyllum »

Hi Haris,

thank You.
The MC 63 is a camera with a prontor magnetic
central shutter from the 80s.
It is intended to be used with the S-Kpl oculars (10x or 16x)
to take images on 24/36mm or using a different back (Sinar type) on
4x5" sheet film. For medium format 6x9 cm I use a Sinar 69
roll film magazine with a 6,3x Kpl.

I don't have a picture of my setup at hand,
but here You can see the parts:
