More pics

These pictures show the V2.1 motherboard as included in the construction pack. Unfortunately due to operator error (me being an idiot) there is no top silkscreening on my PCB. The gerbers in the construction pack are complete and correct. The pictures show the 8MHz crystal on the Waveshare PCB removed and the optional 8MHz oscillator fitted to the motherboard. This was done purely for test purposes and is normally not required.

Note how the 10uF tantalum capacitor below the SDcard socket is laid on its side. This is explained in the construction pack and is needed to provide clearance from the Waveshare PCB.
