Needle-like gradient index lenses are shown to be effective for acquiring multiphoton images from millimeters to centimeters deep in anesthetized animals. We present in vivo two-photon images in mouse of ovaries, of neurons from cortical layer V and hippocampus, and of capillaries several millimeters deep in the brain.
