Rogelio,

Since first viewing this image, one aspect has intrigued me, i.e. the glowing centre of the eye. Is that due to reflection from the objective glass, substage lighting or from some other mysterious source?

Craig,

I only used a single FO illuminator and ping pong ball diffuser, the only thing that I noted is that the eye is losing the black color.
