The Julesburg Meteorite looks excellent in visible light, as it is presented here. View this March 1993 article in Meteoritics and Planetary Science for a detailed description of the object and its composition.

The Nikon Z6 attached to the LMScope adapter is a simple setup that produces very sharp images at high magnification. Once focus stacking is added to the process, the most remarkable images can be obtained. This is a demonstration of the potential, since this microscope is a low price commercial type.

This thin section of the NWA 10669 meteorite spans the entire breadth of my scope’s aperture, making it just a little over 30 millimeters. Thanks to its enormity there is much to look at and explore.
