A crushed shell of an amoeba, you mean :) . Excellent images, nearly as superb as your earlier intact one. One can clearly see the building "stones" it used to make its (now abandoned) house.

Another pair of beauties here 75.

Remarkable insight into the construction of these tests.

Excellent!

Thanks rnabholz,

looking at both images again I do not see any additional details on the 1.6x so I suspect that it is mostly empty magnification at 0.65 NA
