USB Microscope Stage and Tripod Mount
These are accessories for the Vividia usb digital microscope seen here:http://amzn.to/1fPsfxc
The 2 axis manual stage is good for making small measured motions. Using the 1/4-20 thread with the point of the hex nut as a displacement indicator you can measure down to .0083"
Silly putty works great for a holding the stage to the scope mount.
The software for the scope is free here: http://www.oasisscientific.com/downloads.html
