I have an American Optical 150 Binocular Microscope, and I also have an ASI 385MC color astronomy camera - is there any reason I cannot remove one of the eyepieces form the AO150 and put the camera in it's place?

 

thanks!

Be scientific. Do the experiment. Report back on how it went.

Also: always be aware of serendipity and be sure to apply Ockham's razor while evaluating your results!

If you would like some more practical advice, report back, lol.
