This is my first post to this list.  I teach in a Medical Laboratory 
Science (MLS) program in Alberta, Canada.  As part of my teaching 
duties I am responsible for the microanatomy portion of the 
undergraduate MLS program Histology course.  Currently in our 
laboratory sessions, when conducting reviews, I am using a multihead 
microscope which can only accomodate four students at a time.  We do 
have an older microscope with a digital "live image" camera on it, but 
the resolution is not great (maybe the monitor?).  I was searching 
through the archives and came across some posts on digital camera 
setups for histology teaching and was wondering if there were any new 
developments in this area that the group would be willing to share.  
This type of upgrade would take time, but I would like to start the 
research regardless.  Thank you for the help.
