Yes if you hold the scope far enough away from it. I can take clear pictures of paintings on my wall. I can also see crystal in a grain of sand. It will produce such image the size of your monitor . It will make a movie so that you can manipulate the item you are magnifying or take a snapshot of such item.
does this come with a stand? Jun 2, 2014
