First attempt at crystals

Post by phil_H »

Decided to try crystal photography using my camera and stacking rig. Chemicals are Borax, Panadol tablets, Rodinal developer at x20 & x40 magnification. Between 4 and 8 stacked images. Phil

Nice! Looking at your set up I’m wondering where you put the analyser.
