Auliscus hardmanianus

Quite photogenic, I thought. About 200um diameter. The annoying glare at top left is due to a nearby spicule in the strew. Sorry about that. If anyone has any sodium polytungstate going spare, I could fix that on the next attempt :)

Biddulphia elegantula - maybe

Assuming I have the ID correct - could this be the most "median elevations" recorded to date for this species?

Select options/preferences from the menu.

Select the "alignment" item. In there you will see a checkbox labelled "automatic order". Uncheck that and images will stack in the order displayed.

Can't you just modify a small clock (laid on it's back)? The minute hand goes around once per hour as you require.

Edit: just realised you may want the camera to rotate instead of a specimen, in which case ignore my stupid suggestion :)
