Motorizing Olympus Microscopes with Open Flexure Microscopy

I created an Open Flexure microscope and was amazed by its performance and functions. I wondered if I could achieve the same functionality with my old biological microscope, so I created an attachment to connect the motor to the microscope.

Because the gear ratios are significantly different, there is a risk that the stage will be damaged if auto-calibration is performed as is because the movement range will be exceeded.

However, it is very useful for automating the shooting of mosaic photographs.

Processing is required, but the data has been made public, so please make use of it.


Cool project. Thanks for sharing!
