Triple-stained Drosophila ovaries (Abberior STAR 580 phalloidin (green), Cut immunostain using Abberior STAR RED secondaries (red), DAPI (blue)). Starting with a 10x dry objective, an overview of the organ is recorded. Switching to a 100x oil objective, we zoom into a confocal z-stack and further into a superresolved view detailing small clusters of Cut protein and actin strands. Sample prepared by J.
