This is my second attempt at doing a micro-gigapan using an optical microscope and a computer controlled xyz stage. I think the magnification is near 200x. I managed to reduce the vignetting considerably, though it is still somewhat apparent in the unfocused background.

Compare the optical to the scanning electron microscope image:
This Gigapan is part of the NanoGigaPan project. Which is working to take large pictures of very small things.
