Copepod carrying eggs

Post by seta666 »

Hi,

A copepod carrying eggs from a marine water sample

BF 140 images stack with Nikon CF 20/0.75 Fluor and Sony A5100, on a Olympus BHT LED light, some cropping and lots of retouching.

This is the first Copepod I do not crush under the coverslip, I am now using Aluminium tape (0.05mm thick) to make custom spacers

In another post you mentioned testing your polarization setup.
A copepod such as this one of yours is a great test for polarization.

I saw your picture; I do not why but this particular one was not much affected by polarization, specially the eggs. I also wanted to try how much detail I could get in BF, although is almost fixed it seems I have some quality loss when using polarizers
