Thanks for the recommendation. What an intriguing solution to mount the scanner upside down!

We have an Epson Expression 10000XL A3 scanner mounted upside down so the specimens don’t get damaged.  It produces excellent scans. We don’t use Macs unless we’re forced to but I’m sure it would work with one. I prefer to use this instead of our expensive graphic camera. It’s a lot easier and more foolproof.
