Re: Workflow - New WeMacro Rail

That's exactly what I do and it works extremely well.

All of the full size and oversized books have been unpacked(50+ boxes). Replacement bookcases from IKEA have taken more than a month and were delayed two weeks... assuming they actually get here next week. Macro stuff is still packed. It'll get unpacked and put on shelves next week until I can get t...

My web/file server is down due to a move.

I'll have to give it a try when I figure out how to configure the server to run headlessly (temporary space constraints).

Completely moved now. I can squeeze my way into the room to touch the macro table... just. At least I [think] know where all of my macro stuff is. That was all packed into a tub and a rolling cart. It'll be weeks or months before I can unpack enough stuff to start work again. I don't have enough boo...

- I don't see adequate diffusion. Even with no vibrations, the images might not be that great. This is definitely a HUGE issue. Until I got a good handle on diffusion, I got mediocre results at best, even at relatively low magnifications. It takes a lot of trial and error, especially for a beginner...

I used the Pentax bellows and was pretty happy with the results. I got a pretty good deal on mine a few years ago (eBay, don't remember the price). I use mine with the Amscope 4x (good results) and 10x (mediocre so far) finite objectives. I don't think I have, but I should be able to use my old Vivi...

Glad you're getting settled. The trees will look better soon. Is that Cleveland off in the distance? Sure is. It never gets much clearer from this distance, but still an interesting view. The movers are bringing in the big stuff right now. This time the table's going to have a room of its own. I've...

Looks like a great location (except maybe traffic induced vibration) with lots of access within walking distance. Good luck and stay safe. Best, Thanks. The floors seem pretty solid, much more so than the old place. On the plus side, I can practically throw a rock and hit a used book store and Harb...

Books came out to at least 50+ boxes. Boxing up shooting stuff now. Boxed up seldom worn clothes.

Got a new place. High rise apartment. Lot of opportunities for long range photography. Moving in in a couple of weeks.

Looks like it was just a couple of car lengths away from you.. Hope you get a place to settle soon. I imagine your landlord will have a list of displaced people to answer, including those who lost everything. Not fun - keep us informed how it goes? Pretty much. It wasn't EXTREMELY close, but the he...

Update: I just got a phone call from the landlord. I have to move ASAP. The construction company that's rebuilding the destroyed units won't allow occupancy during construction, so EVERYBODY has to move. Don't know where I'm going or when and have TONS of books to move, so no photography of ANY kind...
