wow - that's pretty impressive stuff, Sven... to think that bug's head is only 100 micrometers(.004") long! that's less than the thickness of a sheet of printer paper! i like the golden color the amber gives... almost looks like something unearthed from an Egyptian tomb.

well squirl, less than the thickness of a sheet of paper, but I had to combine more than 10 pictures to get this DOF. The rules of optics are cruel!

Sven,

All the shots are amazing to me! The most amazing thing is just how many shots it takes to make one that you post. Way to much work for this ol' boy. My head would be going around in circles by the time I finished one photo. :? Looks like you've got the bug and the knack for those little guy's though. Very impressive.

Don

Sven, Great shots! Less than the thickness of a sheet of printer paper ! I have trouble seeing a sheet of printing paper when it's laying flat ! :-) Jim

WonderFull stuff Sven at the Micron level .... and me I am playing with a 2.9 diopter closeup lens on an FZ30.

This is incredible work.....

This multi image combining for more DOF is a lot of work,not sure I have the patience.

I remember I worked for BHP steel research in Melbourne in the mid 80's they had an electron microscope now I did not use it but saw some amazing images.

But I still have my old lab microscope which I used with my SLR .... its chinese but super build .... 2 eyepieces and 3 objectives I should rig up the FZ1 with it which is spare perhaps a winter project.

thanks Don, Jim, John and tcook (Ted?),

it is not as much work as you all think...

John: winter is far away for you, so enjoy your achromats and the FZ30.
Be sure that I look at all of your pictures - not always commenting them though...
I have worked in an anatomic institute for some time, they had three electron microscopes. They used complicated software to combine pictures. This is much easier now. But I miss the Zeiss and Leitz micoscopes they had. I should visit them sometimes...
