Very nice. How did you manage to synchronize flash when you are using a compact camera to take pictures through an eyepiece? I hope you didn't need to take out a second mortgage on your house to get that pretty objective. :lol:

Very nice images seems pzo system works fine with nikon cfi objectives.
What zoom ratio you need with your lumix camera in order to fully cover its sensor?

I've tested a lot of different manufacturers of lenses and Nikon DIC works best with PZO. I do not have a full frame

No flash? You must have a really bright light source to get a short enough exposure to freeze the cilia in your fourth picture.

Beautiful shots as always. Hard to believe you can get such quality from an eyepiece and point and shoot camera. That PZO system is very versatile. I've seen people use all kinds of objectives with great results.
