Thanks Chris and Andy. I've thought of getting a microscope back and forth for a long time so I've looked around to see what's available, hence mentioning also the digi-scopes. If it's possible to mount my Canon EOS 30D on a "triocular" and connect the DSLR to the computer it would be interesting ...

I checked now with a colleague at work and he says it's no problem connecting the camera to the computer and take photos that way.

I imagine there can be problems damaging the specimen with the heat from the lights. I have read there are "cold light" emitters, fiber optics, but I'm not sure if that light is enough for photography or if it's expensive.
