I don’t know where Make got this image from, but no self-respecting researcher would publish an electron micrograph without a scale bar on the image. The press does it all the time (I think they deliberately crop them out for ‘clean lines’) and it annoys the hell out of serious people who spot something intriguing and want to know what scale it is. I know this is probably out of your hands, but its a little bug-bear of mine.
Nice image though. I wish I had one of those machines in my shed, but the running costs are a little high.
I wonder if that has a macro mode. The picture shown is a bit fuzzy.
