Circle of 100 diatoms as images using oblique lighting. The circle is 1mm in diameter. Imaging is poor partially due to this instrument having no transmitted light capabilities. The total magnification of this instrument is approximately 20x.
Carpels (pistil) of Magnolia grandiflora as imaged using reflected lighting. Arrow points to the stigmatic surface of one carpel.
Magnolia petal surface. Magnification and resolution is too low to resolve the individual epidermal cells.
