On my BX60F3 the U-AN analyzer works fine for transmitted light and DIC.
Well, one less expense... Thank you =)

Re: Olympus BX60F

I currently have phase, fluorescent, and dark-field capability but was wondering if anyone familiar with the BX series can tell me what I will need to take advantage of DIC on my particular setup. You need DIC prisms in the condenser. The condensers that take prisms are U-UCD8 and U-UCDB. DIC can b...

Re: Olympus BX60F

Hi Bob, Thanks for that information. According to Leica, at higher magnification, maximum effective is around 3-5MP (https://www.leica-microsystems.com/company/news/news-details/article/a-guide-to-choosing-the-right-digital-microscope-camera-for-the-application). Driven by the mega-pixel hungry cons...

Re: Olympus BX60F

That's interesting... I wondered if it could simply be projected onto a sensor as is... I'm confused as to what benefits those optical tubes actually have then. That's great to know, thanks! That Lumenera is $3600 for 3.3mp? :shock: The Lumenera came with my scope so I definitely did not buy it, hah...

Re: Olympus BX60F

It certainly feels like it will last another 30 years--if not more. Thanks, however, it's a bit hard to get some of these stateside without ordering direct or oversees. I can get the Kluber Microlube GL261 fairly easily which accordingly to Kluber is designed especially for "micromovements." I belie...

Re: Olympus BX60F

Hi Bob, thank you for the information. It's all metal so I figured a standard gear oil would be fine. I can't seem to find GLP 220 online anywhere stateside but I did find some equivalents.

Re: Hello from Nevada!

Hi, Thank you! That is a Lumenera Infinity 2-3C. It's not bad and came with the scope. Frankly, I'm surprised it was included as the camera retails for more than I paid for the whole setup. With it, I can use Infinity Analyze 7 which is an awesome piece of software! The lamp is a USH-102D 100watt me...

Olympus BX60F

I posted a few photos in my intro but I suppose it would be better placed here. I have an Olympus BX60F with a UplanFL N 4x PhP, UPlanFL N 10x, Plan N 20x, UPlanSApo 40x, UPlanApo 60x, and UPlanApo 100x Oil. I use a Lumenera Infinity 2-3C with Infinity Analyze 7 and Photoshop CC for my capturing/pos...

Hello from Nevada!

Hello! I have recently started microscopy transitioning from photography. I'm a software architect by trade but I like anything that has to do with science and technology. I recently found some unbeatable deals on pre-owned equipment and decided to pull the trigger. This forum and Oliver Kim have be...
