Telephone Cable Wires under the Microscope

Microscope World recently had a customer interested in viewing the internal cables of their telephone wires under the microscope. The images below are of a telephone cable and were captured using the SMZ168 stereo zoom microscope with the HDCAM4 high definition microscopy camera.

Notice that the last image isn't entirely in focus, this is because the sample is not entirely flat and parts of the wire are out of the smaller focus area that is found at higher magnifications.
