Microbob.
Thanks for the instructions about the fuscine.
This palm tree has been right above my window for 25 years, but fortunately we have never had a pollinated eye.

Re: Restored Leitz Großfeld Stereomikroskop TS

Hello. Well, the subject was a little shaky.The images are very sharp and contrasty at 1x but at 2:5x they start to wash out but still very good, and at 4.x they get quite dark and no longer have such nice contrast. At the end I was able to release the spiders safe and sound. IMG_20210217_211000.jpg...

Nice work! It looks totally transformed. Would love to see more pics, such as a photo of an insect perhaps!
Thanks for your kind words .
I will gladly be looking for a striking specimen to photograph and know your opinion.... tomorrow is hunting day.
Maybe some spiders.

Re: Restored Leitz Großfeld Stereomikroskop TS

The two light pathes have an included angle of 15° on this scope. So for photography it is useful to have an angled base with 7,5° included angle. I have made one of these with the 3D-printer but a pencil and CD cover will do. The objectives have some potential for photography as the apertures are ...

The Leitz stereo scope finally arrived. It is a very nice and robust equipment but it is also very dirty, the optics are fine, well at least it is without fungus, but very very full of dust.
