I'm considering purchase of an astro-modified D5300. One of my applications is photomicrography of chemicals and minerals under polarized light, a few examples of which are shown in this thread. Those were taken with a D300.

 

Can anyone give me guidance for using a modified DSLR in this application? The Unitron 12100 uses a 5W LED for illumination, passed through crossed polarizers. It would be nice to use this for general photography as well. I've read there is a suitable filter available and will now search for it.

 

Thank you!

Randy

Moving this to Cloudy Days and Microscopes for a better fit.

Op reports that he found the filter. Locked at the OP's request.
