Question about Computers & Internet
I did a bit of research, and it looks like the only way that you can use the "Mac OSX compatible" microscope, is using it the same way one would plug in a webcam via USB. Essentially, you can plug in the Microscope, open up the Image Capture Utility, PhotoBooth, or Quicktime/iMovie (I'd recommend one of these two), make sure you have the Capture Device set to the microscope and you'll be able to "project" the image that you are seeing through the microscope onto the computer.
The Motic software does not have a counterpart for the Apple OS, and can only be used if you have a Windows BootCamp Partition, or if you have a Parallels installation of Windows that can use the Motic Software. There are other pieces of software out there that can utilize microscopes, but may not have all the same features as the Motic Bundled software. One that I found that may be of some use is called miXscope. It can be found here: http://www.edhsw.com/mixscope/ , and it is relatively inexpensive in terms of licensing.
This may also be of some help for selecting compatible microscopes in the future: http://www.apple.com/science/solutions/microscopy.html
Hope that helps!
