webcam eyepiece - microscope images


MicroCam - 18076 Bytes
The unit attached to the microscope.

With this setup you get a digital image of the centre of the image you would normally see through the eye-piece. The size of the area will vary depending on how far from the objective the sensor is and the actual size of the sensor area. With my setup the image covers roughly 1/50th of the area that I could see through a x7 eye-piece.

Here are a couple of images taken using the camera and the white LED bulb replacement. The first is of common-or-garden red onion cells taken with a x10 objective.

This second image is of a crystal slice (don't know what!) taken using polarising filters.

For interst, the following is of the same crystal (different part) using the original bulb and the IR filter from a greyscale Quickcam. It lacks a lot of blue and is quite dark, my guess is that near-IR filters from grey cameras do not have to have uniform colour filter qualities as you are not likely to notice the fact that blues are reduced in a grey image.
