Powerful digital microscope on the cheap!

Step 3: Connecting it together

Picture of Connecting it together
First thing is to connect the webcam to the computer and adjust the focus ring so that something is clearly focused about the length of the microscope barrel away.
Then fire up the light and microscope and get your webcam close to where it works.
Attach the clamp. Attach the crocodile clips to the webcam and to the clamp.
Tighten the nut when you are happy with position and your webcam picture and it should be good to go.
You might have to focus up or down a little on your slide for a perfect picture.
