Algal bloom under the microscope

During the summertime, algal bloom is a problem in Sweden as well as in many other countries. The most common algae, often called Blue-Green algae, are not really algae, but belong to another group of organisms, namely Cyanobacteria. This summer we had an explosion of cyanobacteria and other algae b...

Re: Sony A7Rii USB Tethering

Not sure if still of interest, but there are ready-made cables to buy that split the Sony USB into a USB to the computer and a 3.5 mm connector for the trigger button. I have used such cable for a couple of years and tethering using Capture One and triggering with a simple trigger button connected t...

Re: WTB: Diatom arrangements

http://www.diatomshop.com/buy-now.html These are really really good. Many antique slides I have though high quality, doesn't really work with oil immersion. Can't get anything into focus due to the thickness of the coverslip and mounting method. I have bought a few slides from Diatomshop previously...

Re: Peacock feathers

I'm afraid I still don't understand. There has to be a tube lens somewhere if the device is made for infinity-corrected objectives....I don't know what the U-SPT is, but maybe that has a tube lens? Well, yes. I believe the trinocular head (e.g. u-tr30) contains that lens. That is the last device be...

Re: Peacock feathers

Yes, the UIS and UIS-2 series, and possibly others, don't need correction. "no tube lens in the adapters" That's got me confused. If your setup is an infinity set-up, there has to be a tube lens somewhere. I was referring to the photo eyepieces that goes into U-SPT. Or many of the other Olympus vid...

The older Olymous objectives leave some CA uncorrected, amd their proprietary correcting projection lenses or eyepieces will usually be needed for maximum quality. So in these...
