    Celestron Microscope
    I've already got a query to Celestron, but thought I would ask here too. Does anyone know if the Celestron 44320 Digital Microscope will run on an iMac? OSX lots of everything.

    My son got this same microscope for Christmas...can you tell me what Celestron said? We plugged the USB camera into my son's intel Macbook, and nothing happens.

    Is there a driver or some other software that must be installed first (be a little gentle, I'm a 98% PC user and 2% Mac user <g>, though I'm trying to fix that)?

    I came across this $15 software that looks interesting, but of course I'd rather not have to buy it if we don't have to:

    If it works, it'll have to be without drivers for the digital camera.
    On their site, they only have drivers for Windows.
    And the user manual only lists Windows.
    I'll keep my fingers crossed.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
