Figure 1. Imaging system (Olympus C-8080WZ camera
based on Motic BA 200 microscope).
In order to document my fungi findings, I use to write down a record where annotate all the outstanding data as place, date, habitat, UTM co-ordinates, pictures of the mushroom in their habitat and later on, at home, I carry out a microscopic analysis to complete the record.
Taking photographs of the microscopic structures such as spores, cystidia, hyphae, basidia, etc is for me a must because I use these photos to measure this structures with a special measurement software, so it is important to get a sharp and clear image.
The configuration of the imaging system I use is as follows:
Camera: Olympus C-8080WZ,
Microscope: Motic BA 200,
Adapters rings from 58 to 28mm,
28mm Leitz Periplan 10x18 Objective.
