davey has a new toy

finally scored one of these bad boys off ebay.

I have a camera adapter on the way but being the impatient soul that I am I had to hack something up to see where things fall.

This was with the camera hand held and a proper mount will do wonders but I'm still happy as a first try.  That shiny silver thing in the lower right is a 30ga insulin needle that is .01" (1/4mm) in diameter.  For reference that needle is about the same diameter of the wire I wind the autoformers with.  The cool thing is the adapter has a 2X lens in it and to get this picture I needed to zoom out so I should be able to get in a fair bit closer.
