Hey guys,

I am trying to find a solution for taking photos with a Motic inverted microscope (AE30).  As far as I can tell, there are no photo tubes.  I believe this is a binocular version (the trinocular would have a photo tube).  Are there any options?  There is a $300 digital camera add-on that attaches to the eyepiece, but this seems a bit awkward, and I don't want to add a computer to the microscope.  Any cheap third party options, maybe something that will allow a real digital camera which can be easily put on and taken off?

We're doing neurite extension assays, so we need some way to photograph the cells and count the extensions.  If there is another reasonable way (some sort of quantitative kit) I'd love to hear it.
