Yes. The picture posted previously was taken, with the Celestron built in LED light turned completely off. LED desk lamp on the high brightness placed on top of an old book shining down over the Celestron with the coin in a 2 x 2 holder.

After you have focused on the detail of the coin. If you have a plain desk lamp, or flashlight. Play around with the angles of the light directed at the coin at a distance. Though I recommend an LED desk lamp or two of them and play with the positioning to get the picture you want.

The broader the light source, the softer the light on the coin, the better the picture.

Just an FYI, I added the pictures posted previously to my flickr account. I have a flickr app on my cellphone. I take my coin collection on my phone everywhere. Show them off to other fellow coin collectors as it is much safer than bringing the actual coin.

Practice and good luck.
