Hi there! Great pictures! I am very interested how you managed to use your DSLR with a microscope. Absolutely amazing.

weird thing is, i just stuck it up to the lense and it worked ?!?!!?

i was freaking out!!

i had my 85 1.8 0n there, but at 1.8 i would get some ghosting of stuff outside the lense, so i stopped it sown to 4ish held it up to the eye piece and started shooting

Was this a hand-held shot, or did you use a tripod?

WOW... I can only imagine what you could do if you had the proper attachments or fittings for camera to microscope... your quick try would cause one to think you were using special attachments... in other words... I would have never dreamed you could just take a camera and shoot through a microscope. Very, very good work.

You might want to try this again... perhaps a quick series of three shots at 1/2 exposure... and if doesn't bother you in front of others... have a tripod... You never know when a professor might be impressed and could use your photos.

Take care and all the best.

On a trip to Costa rica, a Park guide let people take pic thru a spotting scope..worked good even freehand.

BTW i like the dagger in the flea..or is he packing a sword??
