This is a Differential Interference Contrast image of a diatom. Several image focal planes were captured using a 5MPix MicroPublisher digital camera using the 100x PlanApo objective on the Zeiss AxioImager M1. The in-focus Z-planes were reconstructed using Helicon Focus software creating this extended focus image.
