    Trying to catch up Jon . I think your pics are looking good!
    I'm not sure what kind of lighting everyone uses but I picked up a led ring light contraption that is designed to clip on a smartphone. Thought it might duplicate the lighting on some of the scopes I have seen. If I could play with that and get it to work then it may help others.
    Let's just say that I have a new found respect for those that coax nice shots from these rigs. All my pics were pure frustration !

    So sad ... My reverse consumption engine was a broken fuel gauge ... gonna look at coins now. John

    I use a mix of lighting, LED, fluorescent, and white incandescent. I usually play with them until I find the right one for the particular coin, seems to be different for each coin. John, what do you use as far as lighting? I know your pic rig is waaaay above and beyond anything I use but your pics are always so fantastic!!

    I've seen a post of it before, it was extremely impressive! Not sure what you've done with it since, I know you said you were making it mobile.


    Aha!! I found your pic! http://www.lincolncentforum.com/foru...1&d=1530735907
