Default A few from 2010

Here are a few experiment shots I took a few years back. The first one with my canon A510 and homemade macro lens. #2 is the A510 with a Celestron 25mm sma 1 - 1/4 wide angle telescope eyepiece. For some reason I liked them. #2 flower is about 1/4" wide.

Nice Jbird. What was your home made macro lens?

Just a DuPont plastic pint pant cup with the bottom cut off and painted black. And a Dollar General magnifying glass with the handle removed and taped to the bottom. It fit on the A510 as if it was made by Canon. I will see if I can find it and take a pic I think I may have stored it away in the garage. It seemed to work well and cost me all of $3.

Here it is. The magnifying glass was destroyed but you can see where it went.
