      And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
      You will find that it has discrete steps.

          Parts for the conversion to EPI DIC showed up today. Good news is 3 of the 4 objectives I have work with the Komarski prisms in the nosepiece, I will need to find a 100x objective for the last turret position, tried the 60x I have but it does not work in DIC with that prism. Also the lamphouse is intended for a 12v, 50w lamps instead of the usual 6v, 20W lamp so I picked up an adjustable 3-12v, 5 amp power supply off amazon. Once I have that ill post some pics of the results.

              Section of the top of a pentiumD that I unceremoniously ripped from it's substrate to see the surface.

              Figuring this is about 1000x considering the sensor size of the camera I am using, I need to make a adapter for the DSLR next.

                Now you need to get some different colour light sources, a few filter blocks and a platypus or two

                  It's with the DIC setup I installed.

                  I know a geologist that wants to come over to use it, so that ought to be fun.
