Microscope Alternative

(1/4) > >>

I can't really buy a new microscope right now, but I figured out a way to use my DSLR camera instead.
I haven't done any soldering with it yet, but I tried out the positioning and lighting earlier.

Here's how I did it:

Yes, that's great, just get a desktop cheapo tripod, and a Panavise or cheapo vise and you can work in real time using your monitor as a screen.  Good for home labs on a budget, like me!

Jon Chandler:
Wow, looks like you've got lots of working room between the lens and the board and great resolution.

The only thing I worry about there is display lag.  There will be some, hopefully it isn't noticeable.

What's the hardware/software combination?
