Hey Lew,
More nice pics! I like the ones with one color the best. I have been using my right angle quite a bit in the last few weeks, and they are still set up for what I am working on now and the upcoming week. I have had them for 6 years now and have had no luck finding the same exact ones anywhere. If you see any good ones around let us know. There are many cheap prisms out there, as I have a nice collection of them, but to find good quality ones for a reasonable price is tough to do. Of course if money is no issue it is limitless on what is out there.

Looks like you are using your new glass sphere in your photography a lot now. I think they are good for certain shots, but you will never know unless you try. Thanks for sharing them.

Ty, Bruce! I pulled e trigger on a few different cheap-ish right-angles today. Most of them are from CN, but my 4 million dollar gift card for Edmund Optics had run out :crackup:, so that was fall-back plan, lol.

I'll be sure to share which ones I think are worth the $ and the wait for shipping.

Thank you, Paul! Some of these were not planned at all; like you said, just gotta try something new!

Lovely work, Lew!

I really like the 3rd gif, and image 5569, in that one, the sphere looks as if it's about to be drawn into a "black hole"! :yh:
:kewlpics: +rep!

WHAT ? I can't believe I didn't notice this, that's cool, I have some baseball size glass/crystal spheres with no bubbles that I now must experiment with.

Yes, it works very much like a large lens. In fact, that's just what it is.
