Michael, try resting your forearms and wrists on some prop. Some
dissecting microscopes come with arm rests which are essentially pieces of
wood that slope up to the dissecting stage or area.  You might try using
some books or other homemade device for this purpose.  If you drink
coffee, or any other caffeine-containing beverage, this will aggravate
your shaking hand syndrome.  Try dissecting before drinking.  Good luck !
