Re: Amphora Sp.

Very slick 75rr what software do you use to edit the images? I have just (last night) downloaded LightZone but have not had a chance to use it yet in anger, just a brief look at it.

Re: Microscope Cameras?

Yes much better and they speak English too. Just had a reply from them about the micrometer scale in the eyepiece and it can be removed but that the glass it is etched on is very thin and delicate so I have to be careful. Will try on Sunday when I can take my time with it. (My wife is out for the da...

Very nice how long did it take you to get the thin section by hand and how did you do it?

Interesting article, but recovery was much quicker than the Permian-Triassic extinction event.

Re: Microscope Cameras?

Had an email from Bresser this morning at 10.20am, they were on holiday yesterday hence the lack of reply I had yesterday on the phone and by email, so hats off to Bresser for the quick response, I take it all back (Grumble Grumble). They suggested the same solution as they sent you, so I sent them ...

Hi Dave,
Just to be aware if you need to email Bresser in Germany Freundliche Grüße means friendly greetings in German and I have to say I addressed my email to 'HIM' and sent it before I realized how you had translated the term. :oops:

Re: Microscope Cameras?

I will have another play about with it tomorrow (mostly with the camera). I did manage to take some video to see how that worked and it seemed fine compared to the abysmal results from the Bresser USB camera. I am very pleased with the result as it is very sturdy and of course I have saved 74 € and ...

Re: Microscope Cameras?

Good information here. I got my T2 adapter today and guess what? I can't get focus on the camera. Even taking off the top mounting collar it's still just outside focus. I will talk to them tomorrow and see what they say. Plan Infinity Objectives. I also have a 10x eypiece extra.

Re: Fine focus gone ...

This may seem a bit oversimplified but, have you checked the grub screw for tightness? Or maybe the grub screw is broken and allowing the fine focus wheel to turn on the shaft.

There seems to be a grub screw on your mounting perhaps that is what is holding it tight.

Re: Microscope Cameras?

The top of the trinocular port on mine unscrews you may be able to do the same and 'hack a bit off' so that the camera goes further down.

I have that one too that I bought at the time I got the scope but it's a bit tight in the trinocular tube and doesn't go fully into the tube . I also got one with the USB camera that I bought from them that has some adjustment to it along with adapters for different size tubes, none of which have le...
