I purchased a good quality microscope for those (many) evenings that are unsuitable for deep-space imaging.  The idea is to fit the Canon 40D to the microscope’s third eyepiece (it is a trinocular microscope) and take some photomicrographs – using Helicon Focus to get those SEM-like images (except these are in colour!)  Took the attached 40-frame mosaic of a bee-head which Noel Carboni stitched together in Photoshop CS4 (not without difficulty!!).  Next time I will focus stack as well to get a truly 3-D looking image.
