I'd wager it's the card reader.

Nice work. :) The subject kind of resembles 3M micropore tape. Here's my personal project. Since I come from the semiconductor background some of my friends asked me to photography N95 mask and the surgical type mask they are given by 3rd party contractors. I also photographed a clean room gown mat...

In case you want to do this without reflected light: You might try to cut a small piece out of the mask, mount it in e.g. euparal and observe it with a low power immersion lens, e.g. 10x/0.45 and try darkfield. Me again, Is this the correct mountant? It's all I've found so far in the USA. https://w...

Thanks, I'm open to all suggestions. I know nothing about that camera. Guess I need to do some research.

I see a lot more noise in that first image. I wonder if that might be part od it? It's a 100% cropped image. I see very little noise. To me the blur seems like other strands on different elevatons of each other. The second image is a SINGLE layer, the first image is a multi-layered image of the sam...

I've had really good sharpness with the 10x measurescope objective. This is a 100% zoomed in and cropped at 1024. It's a DIFFERENT part of the specimen I'm trying to photograph but at least you can see that's it's a relatively sharp image. http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/userpix/153_SingleLaye...

Thanks Rik. I suppose I should of mentioned there is a limit to what I could buy objective wise. The Mitutoyo would be out of the question from a price perspective. I do have a Nikon 10x/0.25 that I've not used yet. I have quite a few pieces of glass but no Canon 100mm L macro. I haven't tried a inf...

Image quality question

I've been struggling with this particular subject for several weeks now for a project I'm working on. I figured I'd ask for help here from those that might know what the issue could be or may have suggestions. Is there a way to improve this image to see more of the individual strands? Currently I'm ...

Saul, Wonder if the "new boards" come with the Trinamic chips, these could explain the quietness since they have the Stealth Chop Mode. Best, To my knowledeg yes, the Ender 3 v1.1.5 has the 2208 stepper. that's why it quite. You can also buy the least expensive Ender 3 and make all the upgrades you...
