A microscope adapter could be fun.
When I was in college I worked part time for one of my profs doing phase contrast micrography with a beefy research microscope and (probably quite modest) CCD camera.

It is and it isn't fun.

Yes and no. I bought a microscope adapter hoping to use it, but I'm having trouble finding a microscope with one 25mm tube. Most of the ones I see have the two viewing tubes. Itís looking like it may be just a paper weight!

Try to find a Zeiss microscope from the 60/70ies. They are ubiquitous and inexpensive, due to their robust built also mostly in excellent condition. They all use 25mm tubes.
