Using the Motic cam
Connect the Motic camera
Open Motic software - open finder - click applications - open Motic
File ---> new (make sure live video is checked). If a screen doesn't open, shut down and try again.
Get a good picture.
The moticam can measure the cell size for you. Choose Measure -->Calibration wizard.
Set the magnification of the lens - use a 10x or 40x
Make sure you put in the filed diameter of the low power or high power lens you are using (do you remember these from the beginning of the year?)
To take a picture: use file --> autocapture
Make sure you save to the desktop (you will need to change this)
Also be sure you change the format to jpeg (.mix is the default and does not load to the wiki)
