I finally have the Mustek A3 scanner up and working to my satisfaction, if not according to my expectations. Xsane downgraded its support rating not long after I purchased it, so I have to boot into Windows to scan, which is too bad. Also, the Mustek interface is moronic, shrill, and looks like a parody of the bridge of the Starship Enterprise instead of a proper professional tool.

But! It works, and it's fun to scan something like this at 600dpi and get these quasi-microscopic views. You could see these details with the naked eye, but your head would be blocking most of the light and you might have to turn your nose to get it out of the way.

My main concern for this one was just getting the edges right. It turns out that that's plenty to think about.

By the fifth frame it gets really really good. Calling out the right line from amongst the several alternatives works well.
