Trying out my new USB microscope. VERY easy to use and impressive image quality. This shows a whole new world. This is the real deal.
But when trying to view certain textured surfaces, such as a flat cast surface or the SOC on the Raspberry Pi, the image is progressively greyed out. It gets worse under perfect focus.
