High Resolution & High Magnification CTF3 Submission Images
A few people have asked me to provide higher resolution images of Cuben samples that I test. As I have mentioned previously, regardless of the resolution that I post to the forums, my images are reduced to 550 x 413. Occasionally I will supplement the images posted to the forum with my images posted to another site in order to maintain their original resolution.
This initial high resolution image set is from Dave Olsen's submission 23 virgin sample. It is Breen colored CN2K.08.
Submission 23's CTF3's (Cuben) surface appears similar to all other CTF3 submissions. To the naked eye or at low magnifications, the Mylar appears smooth. As the magnification increases, the shallow indentations and valleys in the virgin Mylar surface material become easier to see.
All of the images I post to the external site 1600x1200 resolution with no compression. The magnification ranges are 40x, 100x, and 400x. As you single left click the image its magnification will increase until the screen is completely filled with the image. At this point you will be at that site's maximum resolution of 1520 x 1100 pixels.
I also encluded high resolution image set for Submission 11B Aged which is CT1K.08. This will give you a general idea of how the Mylar surface degrades with aging for most CTF3 submissions.
