Default Borescope pics

I shot some pics with the vividia borescope (new toy from OSH last year) during the condition inspection.

This is new technology for me; anyone have any thoughts on what I am looking at / how things look? These are all exhaust valve pics:

Cylinder 1


Cylinder 2


Cylinder 3


Cylinder 4


Cylinder 5


Cylinder 6


No issues with the engine, running great. Oil analysis and filter have been fine.

I've got this one:

I can't recall what I paid at OSH, but it wasn't that expensive.

FYI, I cannot see any of the pics, even when I sign into Google and try to open them in a new window.

Google Photos strikes again....

Google Photos won’t work for hosting pics here for this very reason.

I can't quite figure out why it works for some and not for others - very strange. I suspect you just need to set the permissions right.

Can you see this image?
