tl:dr : I hacked open an intel QX3 toy microscope, replaced the crummy sensor with a Picamera, installed RPI_cam_web_interface on it and now have a wireless electronic microscope that you can control using a web interface. It’s a great little teaching tool, and the camera can live with the microscope permanently, the Pi can be detached and used for other projects.
