We present the methods for calculating the forward and inverse kinematics of a fully motorized operation microscope. With these procedures the handling of the microscope in the surgical theatre can be facilitated. Computer-controlled positioning simplifies the pivotation around a defined focus point, improves its accuracy and makes the handling intuitive. The kinematics calculations enable new functions, such as automatic alignment of the microscope at the desired position or following a trajectory of previously chosen points.
