Amazing as usual! Thanks!

I'd be interested to see you do a comparison of same subject of BF, DIC, DF and Phase; or a subset of those.

Here is a comparison I did way back in 2016, no DIC as I did not have it then! Resurrected in 2018

75RR,
Again, a great image !

About modality comparison:
IMO, to reveal the detailed structure of live diatoms, the advantage of phase and DIC over BF, and even over oblique and DF, will be more prominent than for the desmid.

Very nice, thank you. I'm getting ready to try out DF and phase. Your pics looks great!

I think you will find that Phase is quite rewarding.
