Might be too easy. And, I'm sure the image could be improved. But, after about 30 attempts, this is the best I can get right now.

End of a tonearm on a phonograph (turntable).
The business end, cartridge and needle.
At least that is my guess

Good guess fofa, that was the first thing that came to mind with me also

Very good shot, I like the detail in the needle

I'll go so far as to say it is a diamond stylus. The tip would be red if it were sapphire>

My first guess was a stapler but that tip at the bottom didn't fit!

After 30 tries, I'd say you did pretty good.

Thanks, Mugmar and Cal. The hardest part was I was too lazy to unplug the lamp and move it across the room to light the area. So, I had some long exposures to try this.

You are correct. It is a turntable stylus. I wasn't sure how easy it was going to be. Sometimes the obvious things are more difficult.

I will have to remeasure my distance as I know I was under 10". (The minimum we had determined earlier in the week my lens should do.) Although, I did have my three close-up lenses on it. So, maybe that made a difference. I still can't find a manual for these. I may write to Hoya and ask them.

Thanks for looking.
