Tom, I'm sorry I've been away so long. I hope you're still interested in this stuff. The first link is a closeup of an amoeba psuedopod--the large oval object that flows through--is it the nucleus? I was sloppy as usual about making notes, but this resolution and lighting is typical of my 10X object...

Re: slime molds

When I was a kid and first heard about these things, I envisioned a huge amoeba looking just like the microscopic ones, only big and flowing along just as fast relatively as the microscopic ones. LOL!

re pinworm eggs

Interesting but not surprising that these look just like human pinworm eggs.

Through my sadness-glad that this is not a YahooGroups forum

TO ALL: My website, garrydelong.com, has existed the last three years as a free photography site hosted by Yahoo, allowing me to link my microscopic photos and videos to my website thus preserving bandwidth and space on this forum. A couple of weeks ago my website email inbox filled with 58 undelive...

More ID help needed

A small publishing company of nature films has expressed an interest in using some of my microscopic video footage, so I need to get my organism IDs as precise as possible: so here are some lores screen dumps--I apologize for the poor quality. I'd appreciate any help http://garrydelong.com/demo_flag...

Christian, Your point and purpose well taken...yes, I think I have seen higher resolution available for video work--this would probably involve USB 2 cables to the computer. A large monitor would be useful. There may not be a lot of advantage to higher resolution if more than one person was trying t...

This appears to be very close to the species that we in the NW USA refer to as a "yellow jacket" (Vespula sp.) http://www.velocity.net/~aeridia/vespula_germanica.html Adjusting for where you are, in New Zealand, this would be about the time this animal becomes very irritable and aggressive. In this ...

Christian, Is your purpose in connecting your microscope to a computer monitor to enable a group of people to gather around and all watch the microscopic image at the same time? If this is so, it may be easier for you to use an microscope eyepiece camera, such as the Minivid RCA, (about $200 USD) an...

Those halo effects in your image don't bother me. I think the brain perceives those things for what they are. Your idea of combining both effects is intriquing. Here is a little embossed cilia action (Paramecium) Broadband will help-it's a 4 meg file. http://garrydelong.com/Cilia_emboss_bw_240.mpg I...

Psuedo-DIC (emboss)

There has been some light (non-serious) references made concerning "synthetic" DIC images made using the "emboss" function available in much many graphics software packages. I've been playing with this feature a lot using real images, and I am curious to know if any visual information so derived can...

Ken, I have lots more visual stuff from the greenhouse tank, both still and video. Video (mpg) files are big, requiring a broadband connection or, if dialup, a lot of user patience. Today, I sent email to my website host asking about additional online "disk space." I'll put some video up as soon as ...

About Minivid eyepiece camera compatibility

http://garrydelong.com/demoalgae1_375 I found a "student microscope from India" brand new in its original box at a garage sale for a ridiculous price, even for this problematic hardware. This is one image from that scope--while not the best, it's adequate and I was thinking of using it for flash ph...

http://garrydelong.com/demoalgae1_375 http://garrydelong.com/demoalgae2_375 http://garrydelong.com/demoalgae3_375 The details of the algae are quite similar to your images. The club-shaped object is also very similar. I'm wondering if this is a conjugation tube and if other filamentous algae have s...

Ken, Small world. Here in Oregon, we put a goldfish-coy tank in our greenhouse. Algae have grown to love it and it's a constant and dependable source of protists. It, too, is aireated. The algael structure (the club shape) in your upper left photo seems identical to what I have seen numerous times i...
