Stack of about 20 images taken on a GXCAM HiChrome Met-M camera via a Leica S8 APO stereo microscope, processed via Zerene Stacker and tidied up in Photoshop.  Specimen lit by a dome illuminator supplied by GT Vision (https://www.gtvision.co.uk/epages/es141 … D=34773303).  If I were starting from scratch I would buy the illuminator before I bought the other kit and use it on cheaper alternatives.
