the one surrounding the spore wall.

Here is an spore photo I made a while ago producing the same effect. http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image/156243?obs=70959&q=ps1Y

I saw the halo around the spores which made me think otherwise, focusing by looking through the camera was able to largely do away with these slightly halos for me. :)

by focusing the microscope while looking through the camera screen.

Maybe you could try focusing the microscope while looking through the camera screen? It helps on my camera to zoom all the way in while focusing and then zoom out to take the picture.
