zoom in x 40

Another find at the science festival - its is school holidays so I had to do a bit of elbowing to get my spot at the table experimenting with magnification.  They had set up stands with the magnifying lens from a laser pointer which can be used with a smart phoen to produce a magnified image on the screen.

I only had my camera with me but had a play anyway and after much moving of the lens and camera I managed some shots which show the magnification
this speciminis a leaf.  Great fun looking at different materials and amazing what you can do with simple materials.
welcome to some new people zooming in and out last week and of course a big hello and thanks to all the regulars

What a clever display - and it was well worth elbowing those kids out of the way - that's a lovely photo. Like amber. ;-)

Wow that is amazing. I was once invited to Brunel University by my cousin and we was able to look through some amazing microscopes. It is like another world! Beautiful photos, lucky you having a museum like that to visit.
