Setting up a trinoc head, Zeiss standard

#1 Post by phroxian » Wed Feb 27, 2019 4:47 pm

I bought a Zeiss standard 25 (the 160 not the ICS) last year with a trinoc head but I don't have the parts to put a c-mount camera in (and only have the manual for the ICS). To make it work properly do I only need a c-mount adapter and an s-pl eyepiece and would these pieces work?

or am I completely confused on how this would go together?

Hi phroxian,

I am afraid that I like others can't give you a definitive answer on this.

I have a Standard WL (23mm photo-tube diameter) with an afocal setup and when I was using direct projection I still had the camera on a tripod to avoid vibration.

Have you tried asking in the Equipment Discussions section of the www.photomacrography.net Forum? Worth a try.

Remember that one needs parfocality between the eyepieces and the photo-tube.

Here is an article that talks you through this with additional further links:
