recommend a microscope?

If this is not the proper place, please move it.

I would like to purchase a microscope. It will hopefully be used for identification of spores, as well as to view actively growing mycelia. Aslo, does anyone use or know about microscopes with the ability to connect to a computer.

Afoaf tells me that a microscope with a built in camera that outputs via RCA plugs to a television would only have a resolution of around 240x320 or what ever NTSC/PAL video standards are? Also, a seperate digital video camera specifically designed for attaching to the eye peice of a microscope connected to a computer using USB or Firewire would be able to take variable/higher resolution stills and video.

Is that correct?

Yes, something like that. NTSC standard has resolution of 640x480, so that's the maximum you can get with video. But the actual resolution depents from the camera or CCD that is used and is usually lower than it could be. VHS has a resolution of around 200 lines, S-VHS 400 lines, digital cameras (DV & co) >500 lines.
IMO is better to get a microscope that doesn't have a built-in CCD (or camera) and then buy an attachment ring for normal cameras. In this case you can use a classic or digital camera with 4M pixels that has far better resolution.
