Do you know anyone who can run a metal lathe for you?

This is what you'll need to make to adapt your camera for the scope:



You want the adapter to be an adjustable slip fit so that you can experiment and get the focal plane of the camera on the same plane as the other eyepiece so that the camera will quickly and easily take an in-focus photo of whatever it is you're looking at. I'm still working on that part with my set up.

As far as cleaning and care, Ron Shimek has a really good article on microscope care in issue 3 of his AHABS series:



Thanks Witt! I'm looking forward to seeing what Matt can do!

Matt
I hope that this helps a little...

I have rebuilt/restored every microscope that I use. It is really not hard, just takes practice. Special care must be taken for the optics. Mayn companies use special coatings on their lenses. These coatings are easily scratched and can also be altered by use of the wrong cleaning solutions. In addition, many companies use adhesives to secure lenses and prisms in the microscope head.

Your scope looks like it is very restorable. Is that base plate painted glass or some other material. If glass, I would clean the paint off so that you can use reflective and refractive light.

Some helpful links for cleaning and maintaining.

These are some sites with lots of links and additional information. The UK site has been particularly helpful.

You can purchase the issue individually for $6. It seems like a decent investment to me as he goes into great detail. But you are right, you might be able to find it all free somewhere.

I have a friend with a large home metal shop, but he lives a good 1.5 hours away. He's told me he'll teach me how to make all of the parts but I just need to find the time....

Celestron makes a USB adapter for microscopes. Could this work?
