Beautiful shots. The fourth one 'DIC microscopy' is dry NA0.9 or oil NA1.4 and stack from how many pictures?

63X objective Dry - no stacking

The 4th shot is not stacked of the Stentor, neither is the 5th shot showing the macronucleus, it was taken with a 63X objective NA 085 dry Zeiss infinity objective.
