This is really interesting. Have you tried it Garry? Not sure my phone’s camera is up to the task.

No I haven’t tried it. But it looked like something some LJs might like to try.

It uses one or two lenses from small laser pointers (use two for increased magnification) so it’s not dependent on the lens in your camera to achieve the magnification.
