You made it all by yourself or it's commercial product? I've never seen such a refined solution like this before. I mount my flash on a tripod shooting towards the mirror beneath the condenser. No contest for me :)
Thanks ! It is made by myself. It took some time .... :roll:

Re: Nikon Microphot stepper adapter

...What workflow are you using with such a set up? As in, do you zero at the lowest level and then motor away while video-ing, then use toupview to z-focus the resulting movie file? I'm curious what people out there use for software/controllers and how they prevent crashing the objective... Hi Ted ...

So I recently got one for a bargin price - now what is a good stand to use it with? I already have a Nikon Optiphot-2, but this is for 160mm objectives only...Is it worth going down the path of modding the optiphot? My approach (with 125mm TL.

Filters are temporary, just for testing, will make something better :) ... Rotatable pol insert fits Nikon EPI illuminators, Microphots etc ( https://www.ebay.com/itm/323232270818 , 27mmx5.6mm) . It contains gears, when you are rotating one end, another rotates also. http://www.photomacrography.net/...
