Do you have a dissecting scope you could use?  You can grab one with a
pretty low resolution camera for about $800.  If you need more details
let me know.

Hello Everyone,

Does anyone have a good way to get low magnification images from slides?
have some DAB stained rat coronal sections that I would like to
Basically, I want to have a picture of the entire section. It doesn¹t
to be high resolution, just enough to make out the basic structures. Can
someone recommend a way to do this? I¹ve used a flat bed scanner in the
past, and I know some folks use an actual film slide scanner. What I¹m
interested in are tips for finding a solution, particularly what to
and model numbers that people have used. I don¹t want to keep buying
scanners until I found one that works.

And obviously I¹d like to keep the expenses to a minimum.

Finally, has anyone tried this scanner? It¹s a little pricey for me,
but I
do like the idea behind it, although I wonder if it¹s just one of their
stock scanners that they have repainted, added an adapter and jacked up
price for. It looks identical to other scanners that they sell for $300.
