QX3 Digital Image Gallery
The fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) has been a cornerstone specimen for the study of cellular and molecular genetics for the past 50 years. We stuck one under the QX3 microscope equipped with Rheinberg illumination and the digital image is presented below.

Rheinberg illumination digital images were recorded using a reflected light configuration consisting of auxiliary fiber optics light tubes covered in gels (oblique specimen illumination). Another, much darker gel was placed over the frosted diffusion screen to serve as the background color.
