My name is Walter Machielsen and I’ve been fascinated by microscopy ever since I got a toy microscope for Christmas when I was 9 years old, now 40 years ago. I consider the combination of digital photography, the connectivity between the camera and the PC,  and focus stacking as a revolutionary development resulting in lots of new exciting discoveries.

With this website I’d like to show you my discoveries. The biggest part of the nature that surrounds us can only be seen through the lens of a microscope!
