Microscope objectives for macro photography

Hey all, I’d similar to be able to do ultra close-up photography with my micro 4 thirds (G85) camera by using finite microscope objectives as lenses.

I have a little knowledge about astrophotography and how to adjust telescopes to cameras, but lack this cognition in the microscopy world, and so I’one thousand curious to know what adapters I’d need and where to notice them.

As I mentioned, I’m only interested in using finite objectives since they should only require simple adapters and spacers without the use of cosmetic optics.

I accept a trivial knowledge about astrophotography and how to adapt telescopes to cameras, but lack this knowledge in the microscopy world, then I’one thousand curious to know what adapters I’d need and where to find them.

Every bit I mentioned, I’m only interested in using finite objectives since they should only require simple adapters and spacers without the use of corrective optics.

The best microscope objective to kickoff with is this Finite 4X Plan achromat from Amscope:-

https://world wide web.amscope.com/4x-plan-achromatic-compound-microscope-objective-lens.html

It produces a 4X magnification when used at a mechanical tube length of 160 mm. That can be achieved by mounting the lens on an extension tube, at a distance of approx 150 mm from the camera sensor. Information technology will provide a magazine of approx 2X at one-half this altitude.

You lot will need one or two sets of extension tubes like this:-



Sony Alpha DSLR-A850



Sony a77 Ii



Sony 24-70mm F2.viii ZA SSM Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T*



Sony seventy-400mm F4-v.6 Chiliad SSM



Sony 500mm F8 Reflex

I agree this is the all-time route to pursue merely the extension tubes can create hotspots.

I have a niggling noesis about astrophotography and how to accommodate telescopes to cameras, just lack this knowledge in the microscopy world, so I’one thousand curious to know what adapters I’d need and where to observe them.

As I mentioned, I’1000 merely interested in using finite objectives since they should only require elementary adapters and spacers without the use of corrective optics.

True, but should it occur it is easily cured past internal flocking of the tubes. In my case the Kenko tubes I have do non bear witness this, even when using two full sets of extension tubes. I did feel internal flare when using a
conical
RMS adapter. Other users have also reported this.

An culling, but more expensive road is to use a bellows instead of flocked tubes.




A Leitz finite Program achromat 4X, 170 tube length, N.A. 0.fourteen. On bellows at full extension giving approx. 6X magazine
