Foggy/pixelated images Nikon D70

I am trying to get a reasonable macro image of an object to send for evaluation to someone over seas. What I'm running into is when the picture is enlarged there is a fog/pixelation to it.

I have tried different ISO and different shutter speeds. I have taken photos both indoors and out doors of the subject but there doesn't seem to be a change in image quality. I use a tripod and timer.

Here is an example of a section of the photo enlarged to close to the needed size.

I am shooting in raw, large format, and the ISO for this one was set at 200. I have done both manual and preset auto selections with the same results.

Am I just at the limitations of my camera? If so, then how can a 2mp camera take a clearer picture than what I have taken?

Or is there something I'm missing?

I am just a casual user, so you may have to explain things to me in easy terminology.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
