        Thanks for the clip. I'll have to look more closely at mine, 
but I would say they are quite different. The photo I sent was 
magnified 400x with the microscope, but the bubbles are only visible 
as a general "grittiness" in the background on a 2820 ppi scan - 
maybe only 3-4 pixels each. See the enclosed clip and blow it up on 
your screen. When I compared an area of the scan with the same area 
as seen under a dissecting microscope, the more obvious specks do 
seem to match the larger bubbles.

        Sorry - I was misleading. I meant I mixed the final rinse 
using double distilled water.
