Using a camera mounted to a microscope focusing rack assembly

Well. A lot of the guys on the photomacrography websites use set-ups that incorporate a focusng rack and camera. Something that has intrigued me. So I came across a set-up on E-bay. I made an offer and he accepted it..surprisingly given it is part of a set-up costing thousands of dollars.

Once I get it and set it up I will post pics as I intend to use it with my ant photos. I hope to get those pics completed this week. Medical issues have slowed me down. Anyone else using this type of set-up. It will allow me to have several objectives mounted without swapping them out. It should also allow for fine focusing pursuant to stacking.

Looks like an excellent solution: precise and solid.
