Good evening TWIMC; with this stand, I can take a picture of a penny with no issue however, when I attempt to photograph a silver dollar I can’t get it to fit into the picture? What’s the trick or solution? Regards and a great camera! John
Thanks for asking!
We can get around this limitation by moving the microscope away from the object. Keep in mind that this device was designed for microscopic viewing (viewing tiny details not visible to the naked eye), and what you’re trying to do is use it as a macroscopic device (take a picture of a whole coin).
The microscope stand was designed with modularity in mind, all threads are 1/4"-20, which is the same as all camera mounts. This means that the microscope can be attached to nearly any tripod or camera mount out there, or modified to fit a custom mount. You can also try something like placing the suction cup on a piece of glass, such as a window, and placing your coin below that.
I encourage you to experiment and find out what works best for you!
