Figuring out macro with the Q7

Long story short, I have used my Q mainly for astro work. Because of the sensor with high pixel density and ability to change lenses. I have, in the back of my mind, planned to also test out the macro or micro posibilities. I found some dead insects in my basement, and started doing some tests. I'm slowly getting my project under way, and I'm amazed over the clarity of the files the Q produces. I don't do focus stacking, because I have no need for it. My project lies elswere. And I have a ton of reasons for doing this in black & white also, but that is a very technical part of this exercise. This image is a spider husk only just 3mm long. The body of the creature is under 1mm. I just hope this image shows all the details. Well, it doesn't. But close enough. I have planned this for for some time now, how to do it, how to set the light and everything. And I'm happy to say it turned out perfect. The image is razor sharp at 4000x3000, and no noise. Yeah!
