In the pics the centres seem to be very reflective of the light yet the outside edges of the coin(s) seems to be very dark..
Is it an LED light on the mag?
That is correct,it has it's own led light source which can be adjusted via the clear diffuser on the end. I think it has maybe 8 emitters mounted inside the unit,so the light would be concentrated more on the center than the the outside,like you noticed. I could also shut the internal light and the auto-focus off and maybe use my Ott-Lite to see if it makes the whole viewing object the same as far as lighting color,but it never really bothered me enough to get it out. Thanks,HB
