  What type of eyepiece does it have? Most research
microscopes are binocular types which make photography
through them more difficult. Better if its a monocular, or,
if you are very lucky, it has a third tube, which is for a
camera. I suspect it would not be difficult to rig a
television camera to any pattern of microscope, they don't
need much light.
  Another idea is to search your library for books on
microscopy, there are a number. Also, Kodak at one time had
some good booklets photomicroscopy, there may still be
something available from them.
