Navicula lyra

#1 Post by 75RR » Tue Nov 19, 2019 6:15 pm

Planapo 63x/1.4, 110µm length, DIC, stacked in Photoshop (just oiled the objective)

This is from a Klaus Kemp 8 Form slide

Very nice!
I wonder how the individual images (stack components) look like. The 63X has a very shallow depth of focus; on the other hand the diatom is flat and optimally mounted (probably), so...

Not quite pancake flat,18 image stack and it could have done with a few more I think.

Beautiful and amazing as usual 75 ! I would be very interested to also see one of the stack components, perhaps one mid-way from outside to inside ?

Wow and well done. Wish my views of a Klaus Kemp test slide were as spectacular.

Caught up with this one rather late. Amazing detail and contrast and beautifully sharp. Very well done - again.

Glen is the reigning wizard of the planapo 63x/1.4, I can never understand how he does it.

Many thanks KurtM,

I believe the 63x heard you, it vexed me today! :)
