Hi John Yes Ive tried Toupview and it is a very good app but for some strange reason I always had a flicker in the liveview which made focusing not an easy task. I tried many different settings and ended up fluctuating between Toupview and S-eye another app for the imaging. Whether it was a driver t...
Hi guys I seem to be going round in circles trying to simply take a jpg using this software but no luck so far. It appears to be very useful and I`m sure I`m making it more complicated than it is and I only seem to be able to take a jpg after right clicking on `save image` on the Measure page, is th...
My trusty Leitz Laborlux S came with 5 Leitz Wetzlar objectives giving x4,x10,x25,x40 and the last one x100 which is labelled Wetlzar 160/0.17, NPL Fluotar 100/1.32 OEL. Would I be correct in thinking it's for use with oil as it doesn't show a great deal of detail without?.
Yes I have Toupview and that also works fine but I find the image just that bit clearer and steadier in Altami !. Not sure if it's a driver thing or not. Not a great deal of difference between the two but if it was a silly price for Altami I'd happily carry on with Toupview.
Hi guys I`ve been using using Altami studio after someone on here recommended it for my little 5 meg usb camera and it really works a treat. The demo version only allows 15 mins of use before closing down and then it needs reopening. I`ve tried emailing the Altami guys asking how much the software i...
Hi guys I’m interested in what you guys use for a hot plate. At the moment I’m growing crystals and taking images of them by drying out chemicals on a slide over a small candle tealite but I’m sure something better can be used. I was thinking of making one from a silicone heater pad and a digital th...
I've started using S-EYE software for my little Toupcam and works great, no problems at all. I had a problem with Toupview where the image kept flickering.
S-EYE worth a try can't remember which version I have (I'm away from home at the moment) but just Google it!.
For Rheinberg filters I read that you have both field lens iris and condenser iris fully open or you can cut off the part that colours the specimen. Is the centre disc (the part that colours the background) too big or off centre?
I'm not familiar with the Orthoplan as I have a Laborlux S but I had to convert my scope to LED to save my desk from the mini supernova Halogen lamp!. Heat no longer a problem now. Not sure how you could use any heat absorbing filter without jeopardizing the scope
I printed a few of these off with centre discs from 8mm to 15mm diameter and the 10mm seemed the best for my condenser and seems ok for x4 and x10 lenses. The location of the centre disc is important too as I initially was about 5mm off centre. Another problem I found was the colours were not intens...
Hi guys After many wasted efforts because I had the ‘background’ circle off center under the condenser it seems it’s fairly straightforward to print these filters off when you get the correct dimensions and printer settings. It appears any background/specimen colour combination could be made this wa...
