Step 1 Disassemble any USB simple webcam. Just remove any screws and plastic cover that is not needed.
Step 2 Place hot-glue over the electronic side of the camera so it won't get damaged.
Step 3 Remove the insolation from the cable & add a red and white wire. Use a cutter or a small knife to remove the isolation (BE VERY CAREFUL - DO NOT CUT YOURSELF!) Cut the red and black wires and reveal the copper wiring . Connect two additional extensions for these cables (5V DC) and solder the red together and the blacks together (not red to black!)
Step 4 White LED connection. Connect a 50 to 330 Ohm resistor to the red wire and the other side to the long LED line . Then connect the black wire to the short LED lead.
Step 5 Connect the white LED. Solder the LED lines and connected and isolate with isolation electric tape. Remove the mirro from the bottom and connect a toothpick to the two holes that remain. connect the LED to the toothpick with hot-glue.
Step 6 Connect the camera. While you view the image via the SW used for the webcam - position it so you get a clear image . you may need to play with it for a while . After you find the exact location use a hot glue gun to fix it to that position . Then tape the wires tidily to the microscope and start taking pictures
