I routinely use Nikon microscope with binocular eyepiece, but the
whole binocular eyepiece assembly can come off and a camera can be
attached. Camera is typically loaded with Tech Pan at EI 100-250 and
processed in HC-110. Some people like HP5+ and process in D-19. Yes,
bracketing is essential.

But when I take pictures I simply bring the specimen to another
microscope with dedicated image acquisition system... (which gives me
TIFF files that are as big as high quality scans from 35mm films)

I've used a microscope with dedicated video system, but the image
quality sucked for still photographs. (and my specimen are all still.)
