Camera Problems

Is there a way I can mount a Canon Powershot SI 5 that can occupy the field of view? The bulge on the lens seems to limit the range of the focal point. So any solutions?

About COL

I've read the articles on Micscape about this superb oblique variation. I would like to know if it is replicable without a Phase Telescope or field lens. Thanks in advance

Re: A lot to resolve

For clarification I focus mainly in compound microscope work not to mention for me upgrading means just finding new parts to apply to my current scope (Omax M82ES) like objectives and different condensers and the like.

Where to buy prepared slides?

I have a set of Amscope microscope slides. 200 pieces in fact, but most of the specimens are very subpar. Sectioned slices are mostly stained in pink and plant structures are very bland.
So what sites do people buy prepared slides and can ship to Canada.

Spirogyra

After preparing a permanent slide of Spirogyra I took some pictures. While its not as good as 75RR's, gekko's, QCC's, and other photomicrographers I did use only a 5MP Phone camera.
