Lego micro mineral specimen stage 2.0

  •  My second attempt at creating a height adjustable specimen stage that allows finer control of the coarse focus adjustment which  my current microscope stand does not support.
  •  Better stability using steel sheet base attached with magnets
  •  Reduced vibrations while adjusting the stage height up and down
  •  Fewer gears needed to achieve vertical motion 
  •  Allowed me to take 10-20 images manually moved at 40x magnification for focus stacking 

Kudos to:  
LEGO Studio 2.0 is fantastic free software.
