Arturo,

Really nice! Interesting to see the magnification progression from low to higher.

Top quality images!
I'm particulary impressed by the quality of the 4X DIC you're obtaining, this is not an usual magnifiction for DIC, and I don't know about any configuration for it in the classic DIN Zeiss systems. How did you it?

Thank again to all...
Pau: really there is not a factory configuration for this magnification, Zeiss did only a plan 6,3 slider for this range, but mixi g some sliders and prism you can cover all magnification also with some sliders...
in this case i did 4x dic with plan 40x slider fitted upside down and a prism condenser marked II but with NO 1,40 top lens...
hope this help :wink:

Gosh. It never occurred to me to try using the DIC sliders upside down! I've just tried it and found mix/match combos that work for 2.5x, 6.3x and 10x! Until now I thought DIC was limited to 16x and above with my meager slider collection. Now I've got weak but very useable diff contrast at lower powers too. Chuffed!

Thanks Arturo - great tip!

Pau,
i think that only single objective prisms DIC versions (Zeiss, Nikon) do some nice combinations, becouse you can "play" with single little slides!
The DIC versions with a unique cobining prism for objective (Leica Olympus) do not make it possible becouse you should make an inversion of condenser DIC prisms, and I do not recommend itbecause you might lose the alignment of the prisms.
(sorry for my poor english :oops: )

So... are you also inverting the position of the condenser prism?

The condenser prisms in my system are not movable. I can alter the position of the objective common prism when I use the Olympus U-DICT, not with the Zeiss slider III.
