I am thinking about doing some photomicrography. I have a atik 420c that I am not using. if I can find a 42x.075m to c adapter then I will try it.

the reason for this post is I wanted to know if anyone is using an astro camera for microscopy imaging ?

If you can get it to focus I don't know why it wouldn't work.  I sold lab equipment for many years and the cameras I saw on scopes are pretty much the same ones I see for planetary imaging.

I used my Celestron Solar System webcam thing. Seemed to work fine.

The only annoying part is finding an adapter to fit between the microscope eyepieces and the telescope eyepiece size. Couldn't they make our lives easier by using the same diameter? :) 

 

If you have a link for such adapter, kindly post it here
