Print, attach spec with a bolt through the small home and mount in place of a camera. I didn't need to sand anything to get a light-tight fit. Print in a dark opaque plastic, or use a sharpie marker to prevent stray light if your microscope isn't in a darkroom. Note that you will have to adjust the camera focus tube to get maximum signal to the spec.
