When you can’t use a loupe, iPhone pics

My vision is bad, I mean guide dog bad, but I don’t imagine 8m alone in having difficulties visualizing trichomes.
So what I did, using a folding table, and a cobbled up iPhone stand, is get real close to my plants, and use the delay timer on the camera to minimize shake, and the focus function dialed on the area of interest. Then since my iPhone automatically shares pics with my iPad, I can view the pics on the larger iPad screen, and if the planets align, visualize trics.
This GSC auto is closing in on ninety days. Still looking like more, based on this third largest cola standing up as average.
