A tale of two Annelids DIC

Post by curt0909 »

I've had this footage taking up space on the hard drive for a few months now and decided to put it together. There was enough for two videos, one of each species. Probably could be shortened as its a little repetitive. Hope you enjoy it.

First one is an unidentified species. He has a long snout type appendage on his head. I've seen them quite a few times but haven't identified them yet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMDLSYGF7Ec

I believe this specimen is Aeolosoma which has a distinct large mass of cilia to push food to the mouth.

Mostly DIC with Zeiss 40x planapo on Reichert Diastar and Nikon 20x and 40x CFN Planapo on Nikon Microphot. Aeolosoma dark field was done with Nikon universal condenser and Nikon 10x Planapo 0.40

Thanks everyone. I use a Canon 600D direct projection. The Microphot is technically not 'direct' as it has a 1.25x magnifier in the nose piece and 1-2x magnifier selector(optovar) above. The Zeiss did not like this and you can tell it by the videos with poor corner performance. The Nikons stay sharp pretty wide.
