Thank you 75RR - most useful links. I am using camera mounted (no lens) using a 1960s Nikon F microscope adapter (which has an internal lens) and regular X10 eye piece. I guess I am losing some image quality along the way - will see if there is a dedicated Zeiss projection lens for their research microscopes.

Thanks 77RR.

Is the 40mm port a common size? Just wondering if there are generic tubes that will fit this or whether I either need to buy a OEM part or make one.

Cheers
Steve

Looking at the photo you provided with the caliper viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1192, I am not sure if that would be 40mm or 38mm, it does need a little wriggle room.
Here is a link: http://www.martinmicroscope.com/product ... nts-motic/
Click on brands top left corner, C mount for one of those brands will most probably fit

Suggest you email seller with your caliper photo.
