The equipment cost ten pesos

Five for the blue plastic and five for some clear tape. The hardest part was to figure out where on the microscope to put it – the answer is to take apart the condenser and put the filters between the two lenses.

I do the before and after shots because they look really cool in a powerpoint presentation or on Facebook where the image viewer flips between images. I made a couple animated gifs which show the effect nicely:

The before and after shots are great, especially the “tackle box” one. It really gives the viewer the perspective.
