Hi all, sorry for the late responses.
Yes, the lomo objectives mentioned in another thread are for this machine. Luckily for me I've had a few good breaks on equipment and the Axiostar stand was one of them. I did ask in a German forum if the head fitting was the same size as the old standard, and whether the tube lens was mounted in the head or not. The answers were yes it's same size and yes it's head mounted, so no compatibility issues with the Standard head because infinity optics are based on using the Axiostars own head. Once the frame arrived I measured the head mount to objective shoulder distance and it's the same as the standard. Looks aside, it's mechanically the same so a perfect match.
For the objectives, it is designed for 45mm DIN, so to use the 33mm Lomo's I put a 12mm spacer plate (the par focal difference) under the stage and refitted it using longer screws, again making it a match for focus travel with 33mm objectives. Owning both the Zeiss standard 16 and a Lomo Biolam, I tested objectives and eyepieces from both systems with each other and there appears little to no difference in compensation levels, so the Zeiss eyepieces work great with the Lomo objectives.
For lighting, I hardly ever use Kohler illumination so I have a floating hi-power LED I can move around under the collector, and when using the condenser, I have it on a disk I can slide around for oblique lighting. I use an LED ringlight for phase, COL and darkfield by sliding the condenser off the mount and placing the ringlight in its place. I have a Polarized filter mounted in the head so when I want polar I just put another polarizer over the light. It's quite versatile and quick to setup.
Hope this clears up any confusion as to how this contraption works.
One day I'll add an epi head as well.. one day
