    I mention this in another thread but still curious to find how good they work. Has anyone out here that has the camera for on screen viewing of goat samples? Is it better or not. I have been looking but not sure if it works. The ones I have viewed slip into where the eye piece goes. I am not sure what the magnification is or does it look thru the eye piece?

    I like mine, better than looking through the eyepiece for that long (it’s easier on my face...). I don’t think it adds magnification.
    Mine is an OMAX. It slips into the eyepiece slot.

    When you say it doesn’t add magnification, can you see barberpole and Coccidia? I looked at this one on line and can get it for about $47 plus shipping.

    It was included when I bought a used microscope.

    Wow, shipping is more than the camera. Like $64.00 for shipping. Where are they located?
