Congratulations you guys!

Thanks Adam! I had fun trying to enter every chance I got last month with meaningful posts. I liked this format as it resulted in a more activity, and less S-posting than the ones with higher post requirements.

Aw dang. Just caught up with this. You know how I feel about my oly gear for hiking. ;> I wrote and removed two long rambles about it. Maybe you guys can take in some local sights next week weather permitting. Forecast claims to be cooler up my way.

Thanks. I never realized they were symbiotic to my favorite forage food until after I took this. I gather 15-20lbs of Chanterelles a year and store them lightly steam/sauteed and frozen in little bags.

I struggled with the light and it needs a good cleaning(found a lady bug carcass inside the 10x lens) but here the old thing is. It's got a 10x 43x and 97x and 10x ep's. The latter two lenses are oil immersion. I had forgotten the deck light gatherer has a lens and a big multi-blade(12?) iris to control the light - though that's meant for translucent micro biomes and so less useful for solid stuff like this. the Y axis traverse knob wasn't engaging but I realized it was just loose at the gear and fixed it. The knob at the bottom adjusts the light projector. It even has a dial to adjust the binoc width and diopter screw on one of them. Your photos Inspired me to give this a try one day. Thanks!

The one I have is a huge old clunky compound beast from the 60's(or before!) that was surveyed out of the navy in ~1980 and I rescued it from a dumpster. It's got a set of four lenses with two low power and at least one wet immersion, and no light, only a focusing mirror under the stage as they used a "sub-light" to project light toward the mirror. Those things got HOT. My dad worked in medical repair when I was a kid and I often got to play with cast offs like this. This one survived and is still with me. The fine focus is very fine. - Too late for a stone fly this year but if I happen to find one next year I'm totally doing this. :D

Neat! This looks a bit like my early foray's into Astrophotography where I used similar ep projection techniques for sun and moon shots. I keep a full spectrum modified k5 on my telescope full time these days. Thanks for all the info. :)

Oh wow! I looked this up and it turns out to be dependent on the mycella rhyzome of the chanterelle mushrooms I was harvesting nearby! This is a not so great photo of chanterelles peeking out that I took a while before and very close by. I later found even more of them about 30ft up the hill from the waterfall area I found this crazy plant in.

The wildest part is that this little white flower actually uses the underground part of a chanterelle. The bit I harvest is really just a celebration of its reproductive cycle, according to an old BRCC biology professor I once new by way of telnet back in the day, who happened to have a degree in fungal genetics. ;>
