My other favorite internet forum.
www.photomacrography.net/forum

Some serious photographers. You can learn everything there is to know there. Not a gemmo site though the subject comes up often.
The administrator wrote a Stacking program called Zerene Stacker which you can try for free. Lots of ideas for lighting , sample holding, using microscopes and photo gear to get pictures of small things.

I ran across an interesting article on stacking in Axis, an Eclectic Journal of Mineralogy

After all the years I still find it extremely difficult to capture the nature of rough emerald crystals on a pic

Here is my follow-up article to my mentor, John Koivula's 2003 "Photomicrography for Gemologists" article.

http://www.gia.edu/gems-gemology/summer ... emologists

Also available starting with the Summer 2015 Gems and Gemology is a new quarterly column called "Microworld" which I hope everyone will enjoy.

Also, the full Summer 2015 issue of Gems and Gemology is now abailable to download on the GIA website.

Hi all.

Firstly I am an entomologist and know nothing of gems. Sorry.

However I see you are also interested in photography and that is where our interests overlap.

Recently I have bought from the university where I work an old Nikon smz 10 microscope that is still in immaculate condition. Unfortunately there was no adaptor to mate it with my Canon DSLR camera. My idea was to machine a tube that fits in the "camera tube" on the microscope and then connects with the camera on top. There is a funny lose lens tube that fits inside the "camera tube". I have tried mounting the camera various distances from the microscope and have managed to get nothing usable.

My question: What is the specs for such a setup and what do I need to get this to work.

Thanks in advance.

Christian Deschodt
