This slide was never detail stripped before setting up for the close-up, FWIW. I was just in a rush to get that clip finished because I was losing daylight fast, and I goobered the SLB orientation putting the slide back together for that one shot.
I honestly didn't even notice that you could make it out in the video. You certainly have an eye for detail.
