Through the microscope

Here’s a video I made earlier.
A thin section of sandstone viewed on a Nikon S L-Ke microscope with a PACO attachment. The PACO attachment is basically a circular polariser combined with some optical interference.

I must film this again, this was done with a cheap 1/3MP camera. I now have a canon EOS which is far superior.

  1. with that music (great choice, btw) and the changing colours, this could easily be straight out of original series star trek… like the surface of some unknown new planet that they’ll beam down to anyway despite small signs of menace on the horizon…


  2. Great stuff! it’s wonderful what polarised light can do
