40 frames? :shock: I can't imagine combining that many... this is definitely macro and then some! Don't suppose you got bigger versions for view? Even as is the level of detail is amazing.

I had macro plans for this weekend but it isn't going to be anything like this...

I have a 500Mb TIFF - but it's a little big to put anywhere :D

Looking again, I knew something was a bit different, and I only just consciously registered that it's taken with light transmitted through it, as opposed to reflecting light normally. Would it have been possible to do a reflective method with the kit?

Yes the kit will allow reflective imaging, but this sample was a pre-prepared slide that came with the microscope, so it is a thin slice of bee-head probably done in a microtome. Unfortunately animals were damaged in the making of this product!

Never seen such a view.

How do you prepare your test objects, Greg?

Do you put them in wax and then cut them into slices and then microphotograph them?

regards,
HTG

No - there was a special offer with this microscope that gave you 3 boxes of prepared slides with stuff from the plant and animal kingdom as well as aquatic bits and pieces.

I will be taking photomicrographs of tiny insects from the garden, and this will require a separate external light source with fibre optic illuminators (so that I can illuminate from above rather than by transmission through thin slices).
