Hello everybody,

at the moment I am trying to photograph pictures with flash.
The layer thickness is still quite high, so as not to restrict the natural movement of the ciliates.

Hi Anne, very nice images!

I'm curious about your flash adaptation to the microscope, could you post it with images?
I maintain a thread on the subject:

Hello everybody,
thank you so much for the nice comments!

@Pau:
Here are some quick images of my flash adaption:
It s the well known mirror system, with a "semipermeable" mirror.
A specialist built this very kindly for me. I can use it on my Vanox and on my Zeiss Universal, it fits to both.

Anne, thank you very much for posting the setup. It's very nicely constructed and interesting to see the use of a collimator lens.

I've linked it at http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=161563#161563

Any chance that, you could ask your "specialist".friend if he would like a link from you, for other members to contact, solely with a view for purchasing the same flash adapter.

Very handy piece of gear.

Thank you for the interest to the "flash cube".

Please write me a PM to get the contact data of the man(specialist) who can build this or other variations ( double collecter) for you.

Hi Anne I have been testing different flash setups on my Axioscope, using beam splitter and Nikon 800 flash unit. I have been trying to get the shutter speed higher then 1\4000 of second but so far 1\8000 of second best I could do using ISO 1600 with a Nikon D500 - I can achieve the same exposure using my tungsten light. I am going to have to work on this more - I want be able to stop some of the very fast protozoans e.g. Halteria/

Nice setup you put together thanks for sharing.
