Re: Jumping spider ... macro using camera and extension.

Nice image. Perhaps a bit more light? How are you trying to get your microscope images of of your spider? Light may well be your problem? I find you need quite a bit of light. Bright light that you then diffuse in some way. Some people use a single powerful light source and diffuse with something li...

A bismuth crystal

Hello all. Its another stich and stack job. About 1000 images, then cropped. Bismuth is quite interesting. Its cheap, it melts at 271 deg C and forms very interesting oxides when it recrystalises. It also forms very interesting shapes - step/almost south american pyramid like crystals. At the moment...
