. Make,model and price paid please. Are you using a stand if it came with one? Pics a just a bit out of focus and a bit too much glare. You will have a problem with lighting no matter which scope you use. I have two scopes and had to block off all but one light on the scope and had to put a filter over that one. You can also just turn off all the lights on the scope and use a hand held led flashlight but put a filter on that also. Check out the photo section of this forum for tips and ideas.Also make sure to properly crop and rotate photos before posting.

I will indeed take a close look at your words and in fact be putting them into practice here in next hours or so as the words seem to come from informed and iam way other end of that spectrum here . so I will and mean this thank you very much as know enough to know clear photos will give me what iam looking for which is answears to my questions so that I learn about what its I do put lots of time into and in end even if a coin I dont find of great value ill be cool with that as I know real value I get daily when I get the coins go home eat chill look through , relax I do . thats the value and this ill remember its the daily gift and yup thank you for your part in giving me this gift as ill now be gifted with knowledge and heck ya I'm down with that . again thank you . fact is I pick em up off the street I get from the penny bowls at check out at stores , banks when grabbing rolls and the coke ill drink here there its neat the things are everywhere and seems not all that many have interest so I say get em enjoy the time and well profit its there should ya chose to let go . yikes thanks again .

IMHO,a minimum of 50x is way too high. The lower the better when it comes to scopes and a maximum of 200x. 5x to 200x is about all you will ever need. Practice makes perfect and there is a big learning curve when it comes to lighting. Check out the photo section of the forum and do a lot of reading there and ask as many questions as you need to there also. Good luck.
