I cant remember what the software is called. It's the basic capture 
software that comes with the microscope.

No, not really. It's pretty hard to do, if not impossible. You'll have 
to live with it I think, or otherwise, use an EM lol! I work with 
spirochaetes, so it's even harder to photograph them!

But seriously, you just have to focus as carefully as you can, and 
that's about as good as you're going to get I think.
