I made it with a few modifications...I made it larger to accommodate tablets (my school has a 1-1 iPad program) 9' x 11" with the lens centered allows an iPad to be set on the plate sort of crooked and used.Options at the big orange store were lexan or acrylic sheet in .903" or .22". Decided to try the thinner cheaper acrylic sheet (1/2 the cost). Works fine so far (and easier to cut). Only cheap LED flashlights I could find were tall, so I used 5.5" bolts. Took a little experimentation to get the image in focus (slide stage has to be VERY close to camera). We'll see how it works for yeast cells on Monday! (it is ugly, yes, but it was a quick job and I had help from a 3 year old!)
