For those interested in macrophotography with microscope lenses, RJ have now also made up some adapters that will take the standard RMS microscope objective thread. These come in M42 thread mount, so you'd need an M42 to m4/3s adapter, or any other mount depending on what you want to use.

Great find! One of my other pursuits is wood- and linoleum-block prints, usually abstract. I can see a never-ending string of ideas coming from a rig like this one. Have you tried it?

I've just ordered one, as they've only become available just now. I asked a while back if these could be made and here they are. :smile:

Cheers

Thats really cools stuff. I've got a m43 to t-mount(m42 I think) coming and a t-mount to standard telescope 1.25 inch focuser adapter as well. One of the reasons I wanted to go down the slr route to begin with: prime telescope photography.

I can't wait for the microscope pics to start coming in.

Thanks for the post. Now I have something to use the microscope objectives I have around.
