This seems like a good read.

Yeah, don't have a NYT account either, but I'm interested in getting a look at the book. Maybe tell my local library to order it to check out.

CNN article works well. Interesting setup. I see three flashes and maybe a continuous for focusing? The camera has the bellows, extension tubes and a microscope (possibly) objective. Computer controlled rail for stepping images, to be stacked. It looks like packing foam for the diffused light. Laptop monitor is interesting.

I was trying with a Styrofoam cup, but now that I see this I might find this soft foam and see how it works.

So far, I've tried and I'll just call it a failure. I'd have to slow down and get things sorted out.

Early - EARLY first attempts. Arduno controls the rail. Camera should be directly to the microscope objective, no lens. Lighting is complicated and critical. Blob of aluminum is a bad subject.
