OK! What an awesome forum! I already made a post trying to identify something, but I was probably wrong. This is awesome stuff. I have already spent hours as a guest browsing the photo forum of the microscope photography while I was waiting for my account to be confirmed, and now I've got an itch to make my own.

Anyway, I have the gear that is in my signature line...What else do I need? I assume some kind of adapter that goes between the scope and the camera. I am on a budget, so willing to take all the necessary steps, just please be gentle and recommend the bare minimum to get started Smile

I am wanting to get photos this clear (in OP)...

Thanks in advance.
