Possibly Larinioides cornutus (Furrow Orb-weaver). Not positive as the condition it’s in and lighting are disorienting. Metepeira may also look similar.

Is there a way to calibrate the color on the microscope? I used photo filtering on the image, it clearer with the colors removed, like a black and white photo.
