Chances are that alot of the group members employ scanners to make
close-up photos of their meteorite collection, for albums, study, or
whatnot. The standard 1200 dpi desktop scanners do a good job capturing
details down to a mm or so on a flat-faced sample, and when enlarged and
printed, the results can be quite stunning. Anyone shooting digital pics
with normal lenses or through their stereo microscopes would be
We have been able to arrange a purchase of high quality photo paper
specifically for ink jet printers in a fairly large volume. The finish
is a "satin", the sharpness and brightness are excellent, it dries
almost instantly, and it's a heavyweight paper like the regular photo
printers use at the commercial print developers.
The usual cost for something like this at Staples or Office Max is
around $1.00 per sheet, but if anyone on the list is interested, they
can get some from us at $.60 per sheet...we can package it in the
quantity you need, with a 20-sheet minimum.
Contact off list if you'd like to try it.
Thanks, and keep your eyes on the Leonids!
