Moth and swiss chard seeds

#1 Post by geo_man » Tue Apr 21, 2020 6:13 pm

Hi all, found the moth in my laundry room and I've always thought swiss chard seeds were interesting (from a distance:). They look a bit like bone fragments! Stacked images with my SZ7. Stay healthy!

At first glance I thought those were vertebra!

Is this a stereo microscope? What kind of magnification?

Thanks for the nice comments here.

Don: yes, its a classic B&L StereoZoom 7, with magnification 1 to 7X (10-70X with 10X eyepieces).

I use an inexpensive camera adapter to connect my Canon M50 which seems to be equivalent to ~20X (or so) eyepieces. Considering that I'd estimate that the magnification in the pics shown range from about 20 to 60X. And thanks for your interest!
