Have any of you purchased or used the lucite Rheinberg Filters I see on Ebay? Considering price and material it seems a tempting purchase. Your thoughts and opinions please? Thanks.

Can't say I have purchased any Rheinberg Filters but if you post a link perhaps someone can give you an opinion on them.

Wasn't sure if that was allowed. Thanks for the info. This link should work.

I bought some of this seller's darkfield, circular oblique, and oblique illumination inserts for substage condensers. They are very well made.

No experience with the Rheinberg filters, though. If I plan to try Rheinberg illumination, I would have no problem buying his products.

Thanks for that feed back. Not sure I would use them often but think I would like to try the technique and the price seems reasonable.

I have purchased a set of the Rheinberg filters on ebay for $30 and I think they work great!

I wrote an article on Rheinberg filters: https://www.canadiannaturephotographer. ... s2017.html

And I am including one photo of a ribbon worm below I took with a Rheinberg filters. I also combine them with DIC - I think for $30 you would be hard pressed to find a better deal for any other microscope accessory. You can make them yourself out of soft sheets of coloured plastic, but the thicker plastic filters are ideal and should last many years.
