Condenser with 1.4 aperture...

Post by Stefano B »

Dear all, colud you please post some shots of protozoans (or their parts) taken by an immersion condenser (for example with aperture 1.4) + an immersion objective? I haven't seen many of them in the web. I think in many cases resolution is better but not contrast.

I once tried the CFN 60/1,4 oil objective and 1,2 oiled condenser, there was a difference in resolution and brightness but very small, in my opinion definitely not worth oiling and cleaning condenser and slide...

I'm looking for the the extemely rare V-IM magnification changer for the E800 scope. If you have seen a listing or have one for sale please let me know.

I agree with Litonotus. A lot of work for some minor improvement... if visible
