Are you handy at building things?
Olympus BH microscope base with adjustable X-Y Stage
Microscope objective adapter up to x40 E-plan
A chunk of channel iron
A two light adjustable microscope lighting system.
Nikon D6000 is a good base! the lens and mounts are the key however.
Or a cannon setup (bellows and base camera)
Any you will have one heck of a nice macro set-up that will rival some
$20,000 microscopes and more!
