What moves on these little guys, the stage or the head/nose piece? I am particularly interested in using my Canon D60 with an eyepiece adapter, but it is heavy and I don't have the setup to support the cameras weight if the microscope cannot.
It is the stand that is rigid on these scopes and Kyowa made a straight photo-tube for them, HOWEVER, they are VERY DIFFICULT to find! The stage moves for both course and fine focus. These stands are very rigid but they are also aluminum and, at an angle, would NOT be sufficient to support a heavy camera.
My primary scopes are the Leitz Ortholux I and Orthoplan which are rigid stands usually featuring the trinocular head as a standard feature. I'm currently using a Canon Rebel T3i and the Ortholux is a wonderful platform for it. The Canon is reasonably lightweight but even with after-market battery packs, can start to add up in weight.
In your case, definitely seek an arrangement that utilizes the camera in a turn key vertical mount.
