010 - Microscopic pond life.

Post date: Jun 25, 2014 10:53:07 PM

Marc gets a sample of slime from a pond near the Zunag river in Ecuador and then puts it under the microscope so see what is there.

The setup that I show in the video is a later one to that which I took the original shots.

It was the same olympus microscope but rather than with the teleconverter I had unscrewed the top lens of the eyepiece and then mounted the camera on top of that with a tube, very budget but it worked!

I am getting much better results with the new setup, of course it is still evolving and I will have another video using it soon.
