My Celestron 10-150x digital microscope. Got it at Fry's Electronics ~$60.00
I epoxied the included plastic clamp to the housing for rigidity, removed the ball swivel from the 1/4"-20 hole, made a bracket & 1/4"-20 thumb screw.
The resolution is phenomenal, focus is a breeze, and the added bonus is that there's a ring of white LEDs built into the housing. Plugs into the USB with some easy-peasy capture software, and voila!

Part clearance. You want enough resolution / magnifaction for accuracy and at the same time you want the field of view to be big enough
so you can see what or where your at. The working distance is fixed since if you were to change the Z axis heigth you won't be viewing the exact same spot.
The Xbox plug in allows the view to be reversed or show the image erect.

Just mounted my 200X Microscope Camera I got off Ebay ..........

Hey John, just now looking at the cameras, so many !
Care to tell which one you chose ?
Your quality looks nice. I'd hate to get a clunker.  :)

Thanks,
Russ
 :)

This is the one I purchased off Ebay.

The XBOX 360, which is a handheld game controller, acts like 2 mpg's and can be configured numerous ways to yor liking.
So it easy to go from slow to rapid movement or just creep into position. This allows you concenterate on movement and is natural in use.
Thus it saves time when using Copycat to trace out an outline of the object.

So I am assuming there is some type of addon for Mach3 for the XBox 360 controller, I'll do some searching.
It sounds really cool.

  Thanks,
