First microscope picture

The microscope in this topic might not be good but is is fun to play with. Especially on a rainy day. My camera is connected with the Pentax microscope adapter (m42). Focussing done with live view. The lens used is 4x https://www.astapix.be/forum2/IMGP9602vliegenpoot.jpg https://www.astapix.be/forum...
