This first attempt at an extreme macro. The insect is about 1.5cm in length and it's eyes were a tiny black dot. I used the internals from an old zoomlens handheld on to the sklight filter on my 5060 lens tube.

Googly eyes

This is the first one I've seen from a 5060 and it shows that with a little effort they can also take large diopter macros. Nice job!
