I've got an upper light and a lower light and I was getting a better
image from below. If its plant stuff, it's not as opaque as grit, the
lower light helps in that identification. Granted, a better tool
would help! Resolution and all here is ..... not great. But, it was
cheap, and it's shiny, and simple enough for a child to understand, so
I can just about deal with it. There IS an advantage in that.
