Hello!

It's both pleasure and honour to be a member of this community. I've been lurking Photomacrography forums for almost a year now, and, well, I have to admit it's become one of my favourite sites on the web. Not that I'm going to start posting every day from now on, but lurking and not writing ONE post could be considered rude Laughing

Myself, I am 22 years old and I live in Northern Europe. I have just started experimenting with both macrophotography and photography through the microscope. I'm really looking forward to this spring. I use a Nikon Coolpix 4500 digital camera, and I have an old LOMO microscope which I believe is Biolam R-15 (could anyone confirm this? I got it used, in a condition far from mint Confused) At the moment it looks somewhat like this:



Sadly the X-Y mechanical slide stage is broken, also the spare objective slots are missing the plastic caps. The scope needs some serious cleaning as well, and I'm still to figure out the best way to couple it with the camera.

Anyway, thank you for this site. It's a wonderful source of information, inspiration and encouragement. And keep posting those wonderful photographs! Very Happy

Best regards,
Hemulen

Welcome to the community Hemulen Very Happy I don't know much about LOMOs but mechanical stages are pretty simple in their construction and should not pose to great of a problem to fix. Optics Planet on the web may have the parts you need and the covers for the objective ports if you want them or a set of objectives to complete the turrent. Smile

If lurking in the shadows is your thing, feel free but constructive suggestions and commnets are always welcome. We look forward to hearing more from you and when you are ready, seeing some of your photographic work. Again welcome aboard. Very Happy
