    No clouds this time and I've reconfigured the wedge so the polarising filter is closer to the sensor. No idea if it would make a difference or not. Seems sharper but it may just be the seeing/lack of clouds. 30 frames out of 60, 1/3200 ISO 100 Pipp>Registax>IMPPG>Photoshop.

    Just the fact that it's magnetic is a good start. Then you've got the shape. Then Shove it under a microscope and eyeball the structure.
