Default Beyond macro: beach sand @ 40x

The 40x is a rough estimate. A crude set-up: I drilled & tapped a body cap and attached a 5x microscope objective to a Kenko 36mm extension tube which I then attached to my D7100. I supplemented with flash @ 1/16 manual. I collected 4 images using my focusing rail making very careful incremental adjustments. I then stacked using Helicon focus and then cropped 1/8 of the image. I've attached both.

Thanks to all who commented. I really messed up with the magnification: it's actually around 7x-8x.
