So I managed to get the microscope running, within Windows boot camped within Mac OS, and the motors seem to be running.
I think my problem from the last thread I started (Running Openflexure on Mac or Manjaro) was because I had accidently installed a default Raspian image onto the microSD, rather than the Openflexure Raspbian. That was probably why the host name “microscope.local” never popped up - because it was just plain old raspberry pi.
But now, having gone the high-quality RPi camera, with a 40x, 0.65 objective lens, I’m having trouble getting a clear image. I think I may have found the proper measuring distance for this lens (36mm), but I could be mistaken.
I’m able to see blurry shadows when I put slide samples above the lens, but I don’t know how to focus it. I just tried calibrating the camera again, and the screen went bright green, with shadows still visible when I put slides above it.
Anyone have any advice here?
Also, I couldn’t get the LED working, so for the time being I have a small flashlight electrical-taped to the illumination dovetail piece, and that seems to be working.
