K110D and Zeiss Photomicroscope III

Hi all, I'm new to Pentax Forum, but after looking thru all the threads here, I've been missing out on a lot of good info.
Maybe someone can help me out.
I have a Zeiss Photomicroscope III and wanted to attach my Pentax K110D.
Has anyone done this before and if so, do you know who makes an inexpensive adapter to fit the two together?
I'm open to any suggestions. I've spent a lot of time looking, but no luck so far.

I use a t-adapter to mount my K-5 to an Olympus scope. That is assuming you have the photo tube that goes to the trinocular.

Thanks for the welcome. Wish I had known about this site years ago. I started out with a Asahi Spotmatic back in the late 60's and used the same camera up until about 1990. Quite a run. Now I go between my K110D and my trusty Lumix DMC-ZS7. I have this older Zeiss microscope that I want to resurrect and upgrade with my Pentax. Just difficult to find an adapter.
Anyway, thanks again for the welcome.

Well, I don't know what exactly you need to connect the camera to the microscope. Pentax made a K-mount microscope adapter. I have one around somewhere. So, you might be able to find one on the market. But I don't know if it will work. Check Bojidar Dimitrov's famous and comprehensive K-mount page (which might be still under revision?): Welcome to Bojidar Dimitrov's Pentax K-Mount Page
