Thread subject: :: Need alternative to stereo microscope

Posted by Leif Bloss Carstensen on 09-10-2014 10:10

This spring my old neck suddenly deteriorated so I had to have cervical surgery. This means that if I use my stereo microscope for just a few minutes, I will have neck pain. I therefore need a solution where the magnification is transferred to a computer or tv screen. I am interested in hoverflies, especially larvae, but will expand my area of interest to other fly families if I find a solution. Otherwise I'm afraid I will have to stop. Life will be boring without flies!

I think my stereo microscope is x30 and x60. Do you know any alternatives? Any experience with Dino-lite or Ken-A-Vision camera or other devices?
