Hello, can anyone suggest me a highest possible magnification stereo microscope which supports camera recording and realtime preview of the camera footage on your PC?

Zeiss, Nikon and Leica are good names in microscopy. If you can afford them, start there. If you are after lots of magnification, I'd look for a 100X objective and 10x ocular configuration. There is no point in more magnification, you are reaching the limit of resolution of an optical scope. Consider whether you need epifluorescence.
