QX3 Digital Image Gallery

Dried Tree Leaf

We purchased the Intel Play QX3 in late October 1999 when many of the tree leaves in Tallahassee, Florida were beginning to turn brown and fall from the branches. After retrieving a leaf from the ground, we examined it with the microscope to get an enlarged view of the veins and texture on the surface.

These images were captured using the oblique illuminator built into the microscope head with the assistance of a Dolan-Jenner Model 180 fiber optics illuminator using a 150 watt projection lamp. The light pipes of the illuminator were placed at approximately a 45-degree angle with respect to the optical axis of the microscope and were positioned to evenly illuminate the specimen.
