Finally got my SM-LUX-POL in good condition, recently serviced and ready to put to work!

Currently it has
12v 100w lightsource

Pol condenser

170/- 10/0.25 P
160/0.17 NPL FLUOTAR 25/0.55 P
160/0.17 NPL FLUOTAR 40/0.70 P

One of the first pictures I took with it -- holding the camera in front of the eyepiece.
It looks much better in person, very happy with it!

In the future I plan on getting quite a few accessories for it including:
Bertrand lens attachment
Ploemopak for incident light
Mechanical stage if I can find one that doesn't cost a small fortune
I would eventually like to get a lower power and higher power objectives

Do I need to stick with P objectives for polarized light work? It seems like the fluotar's and P objectives are rare and expensive, I'm not sure how much of a difference they make.
