A new toy

One of my (many) birthday presents[*] last month was this little beauty ...


... A USB-powered microscope that alleges that it does 20X to 400X magnification. I've yet to work out quite what it means by this, or how best to use it, but I've already had some fun taking images with it. The selection below shows a few to-hand items that were in the immediate vicinity of our home PC ...


There are a few more images over at Flickr, and I'm looking forwards to having a further play with my new toy in the near future.

[*] Eagle-eyed viewers may spot a second present in this photograph: a cross-stitch version of Pushkin that C laboured lovingly on.
