I have a thread going of my first attempt at growing hops... I'm really pleased with the outcome. Here's a few images I took of one of my hops magnified from 10 to 40x...

Fortunately, I have access to some nice imaging equipment at work... these were taken with a high-res digital camera attached to a stereo-microscope. I played with the angle and intensity of the lighting some to get the best image..
