Default Spirogyra (algae)

Maybe not the best example...

One thing I have to say about photographing through a transmitted light microscope (TLM) is that it is comparible to photographing through a telescope (astrophotography). Astrophotography requires long exposures to reveal breathtaking images of dust clouds, nebulae and distant stars and galaxies, on the otherhand, a microscope, though long exposures are seldom required, requires a substage flash and a number of other things to reveal breathtaking images of the microcosom. My images are raw images, just as they appear through the microscope, so some of that razzle dazzle that we see in professional images is not revealed.

Thanks a lot Ken. Nice shot. The spiral ribbon doesnt show well and not sure how you would light it so it would. Brings back old memories.

You're welcome! The spirals do show up well usually, but every so often the angle just isn't exactly where you would like it to be so that they do. Spirogrya can appear in a number of developmental stages and so not all morphologies are exactly textbook.
