Step 1: Step 1: Make Your Microscope Ready

This is my microscope, First remove the eye piece or remove the complete tube like section which I marked for best result, You can remove that tube like structure by just unscrewing, This method is suitable for most of the microscopes. and also add a LED with a switch and battery (don't forget to add a resistor to prevent burning of LED).

Step 2: Step 2: Make Your Camera Ready

For Best result you need a webcam of 20 Megapixels,

Here I used I ball 20 Megapixel webcam which is just $20.

Remove the cover and lens of the webcam, Because, Microscope already contains magnifying lens.

YOU MUST REMOVE THE LENS OF WEBCAM, IT CAN DONE BY JUST UNSCREWING THE LENS.

Step 3: Step 3: Attach You Camera With the Microscope

Just attach your Microscope and Webcam together with some glue. That's all, At the time of writing this instructable, I gave my microscope to my school, so I am unable to upload the actual image of microscope and camera but images of specimen are 100% real and taken with my microscope.

Step 4: ENJOY !!!!

ENJOY WITH THE CRYSTAL CLEAR IMAGES OF YOUR SPECIMEN BY JUST PLUGGING THE CAMERA TO YOUR COMPUTER AND USE ANY CAMERA SOFTWARE.

    There is not such thing as a 20 MPx webcam, that is just a marketing scam. Use a 2.1 MPx camera (one that can record 1080p) and you will be fine.

    Great instructable, but you need to show a picture of the camera attached to the scope. Perhaps a friend at school can photograph it and send you the image.
