Setting up the condenser with a very bright LED

Post by Cyclops »

Well I was given an LED lamp and got to try it out today. It's not ideal and even at its lowest setting it's unbelievably bright!
I can't remember how to set the condenser properly, but it doesn't help that the screw holding it in lost its thread and fell out! I can move it up and down by hand!
