Images made through a microscope. All subject types.
Leitz Ortholux microscope
4X Leitz projection eyepiece plus 1/3x relay lens
Image 1- 10X Olympus S Plan, 310 images at 2.5 micron increments. 15x on sensor.
Single anther with pollen grains and filaments.
Image 2- Leitz 6.3X Plan Apo, 75 images at .001" increments. 9.5x on sensor. FOV 2mm
All four anthers present in this blossom. The subject of image one is at the lower center of this image.
I got very lucky keeping the “wilt” movement under control long enough to get the deep stack in image number one. I have not been able to identify the plant that these images are made from. The pollen remind me of the vitamin E and fish oil capsules we humans ingest.
