Yes, these microorganism move super fast. You follow the animal by means a translational X-Y control. See picture attached.

This a picture of a mechanical stage. The movement of the translational XY controls are very smooth and precise and it requires skill to keep a fast moving object in the center of the frame.

Great work! Fascinating!

Thanks for sharing.

That is a cool rig and microscope. I didn't know they had all those option to separately apply light, split the view between binocular viewfinder and the camera.

I noticed in the video you seemed to do an impressive job panning around to keep the view on the critter. Was this a pan/crop in post or do you have some kind of fine tuning knobs to move the camera at the microscopic level?

I noted this and was curious as well.

Interesting. So you are actually moving the slide or petri dish rather than the camera itself? I am surprised these movements don't disturb the scene more.

You should post a video that walks through gathering a sample, preparing it for microscopic view, then how you operate the machine. I actually fine the process almost more interesting than the result!
