Re: [Histonet] microscope eyepiece adaptor

From:Philip Oshel

Thales-Optem, or whatever they're calling themselves nowadays:
We have one for connecting a Nikon Coolpix 5000 to our various light 
microscopes. Works well, is well made, and is significantly cheaper 
than the other brand I've seen (which name I forget, but ...). Get 
the 30 mm accessory, and you'll be able to use this in most any 
microscope eyepiece or phototube, 22 mm or 30 mm diameter.
But! This isn't enough! You also need to get the Nikon filter 
adapter. For the 5000, this was the E6-UR (if I remember right). This 
is a step-down adapter that screws into the front of the lens, and 
the eyepiece adapter then fits in the filter adapter. I don't know 
the part number for a 990.
We bought ours from National Graphic Supply:
But you'll have to call and talk to the rep for your area -- supplies 
like this are *not* obvious on their web site.
