Is it bad form to drool on a public forum ?

You are my new role model as I attempt to push all my pieces and parts into a pile that will end in a multifunctional microscope.

My first post. I should say something intelligent: HOLLY COW! Does this thing voice-activated, auto-everything including focus, motion tracking, lighting, etc..?

Congratulations on an impressive system!

Thanks! Yes it is a great scope with almost endless options and configuration. My goal is to have it complete with all options listed in the brochure. I have collected parts for it for the last two years from all over the world. The confocal option might be out of range. I saw one on ebay, used, but listed at $40.000 :x :o
