      Please forgive the request of an ornithologist turned entomologist. I know
      what to look for when purchasing binoculars and spotting scopes (Leica,
      Swarovski, Zeiss), but I need advice on purchasing a dissecting stereoscope.

      All this year, I am doing bee bowl surveys (a la Sam Droege) on Hart-Miller
      Island , MD in the Chesapeake Bay . I would like to purchase a quality
      microscope for identifying bees and other insects. I also would like to
      have the capability to photograph pinned and live specimens. I would
      greatly appreciate it if anyone could advise me on the following:

      recommended makes/models
      makes/models to avoid
      suppliers
      lighting (I assume cool temperatures are needed for photographing live
      specimens.)
      photographic capabilities
      specifications to look for
      anything else

      If you can assist, please respond directly to me (or to the list if you
      think that the information would be of interest to others). Thank you.
