I may see if I can get hold of a more powerful loupe, mine is a 7x magnification & produces some good results but I would love to try a 10x or even a 15x magnification model. Lighting is a problem, the on camera flash is not a big help in low light as the subject is far too close to the camrea body so I may look into some sort of slave flash or possibly an led arrangment around the body of the loupe.
