5. Double Click the [MicroViewer 1.3MP] software, the start-up screen will show up (Fig. 3).

6. Place the camera on or above the object to be viewed (Fig. 4).

7. Tilt the digital microscope slightly when viewing the object in order to get more depth of field to resemble a 3D image (Fig. 5).

8. The Mighty Scope can be used to get the desired magnification preferred by the user. The closer the

Mighty Scope is to the object, the larger image will be and higher magnification (Fig. 6).

9. A clear focused image is obtained by adjusting the focus knob as well as changing the distance between the object and the Mighty Scope (Fig. 7).

10. If the image is blurred, adjust the focus knob to the right end and view the image of the object in lower magnification first (Fig. 8).

11. When magnifying an object, adjust the focus knob slightly to the left or right, depending on the working distance, until image is clear (Fig. 9).

12. If the object has too much relief or if a higher magnification is unnecessary, lift the Mighty Scope a little bit and adjust the focus knob slightly to the right or left until the image is clear (Fig. 10).

13. LEDs can be adjusted by the light wheel. Turn the knob to the right to get a brighter light and to the left to get a dimmer light (Fig. 11).

14. When using high magnification to observe a specific area of the object, placing the digital microscope on the stand holder is recommended to obtain a clearly focused image (Fig. 12).

15. Use snapshot button to capture an image (Fig. 13).

FAQ

Q. After inserting the software installation CD into the CD-ROM drive, why doesn’t the install start automatically?

A: Due to the computer’s system security, many system’s software disables the CD-R/USB Auto run function. Please double click the CD-ROM drive on your computer, and click the

AUTORUN.EXE file.

Q. Why does the image lag after I check the Use AVI Decompressor box on the Video Setup window?

A: The Use AVI Decompressor function doesn’t support Windows XP

SP3 or above.

Q. Why is the measurement number incorrect?

A: You need to use the Calibrate function on the measurement window before making a measurement. Also if you change the focal distance or height of the object you will need to use the

Calibrate function again.

Q. After installing the

Q. I can’t install the MicroViewer because of the antivirus software protection. How do you solve this problem?
