Re: Nikon Type S microscope illumination

Thanks guys...it really is a nice looking and working scope. I purchased it from a retired doctor...well his daughter anyway. I've just gotten back into this and time is spread thin...but I will post some images when I get rolling.

Re: Nikon S Microscope objectives

Charlie...Thanks for the lengthy and informative response. My stand serial number is 67321 and the head 72090. The finish is in fantastic shape with only a few pinhead sized chips and scratches on the top edge of the base. I've only seen one trinocular head for sale and the cost was way out of range...

Nikon S microscope

Well....I'm finally posing a few pics of my scope with the RetroDiode LED illuminator. It fits and works perfectly. Much more compact than the original tungsten illuminator and transformer. The scope was $75.00 off Craigslist and the illuminator was $140.00. That's a pair of 5x eyepieces in front of...

Other interests include woodworking, watercolor/sketching, gardening, road/mountain biking...just to name a few. So this is just another hobby I'...

Re: Nikon S Microscope objectives

Thanks for the response Charlie. I just got back into this as an additional hobby and thought it would be nice to have some better objectives. I'm not a collector but do try to keep thing as original as possible...but I can break the rules. I do not want to break the bank either as my main hobbies a...

Re: Nikon Type S microscope illumination

I'd like to thank you all for your responses and suggestions. I contacted RetroDiode and ordered an LED illuminator for my Nikon S microscope. There wasn't one ready to ship out...but one was fabricated, assembled and shipped out in approximate a day and a half, it was $140.00 including shipping. Up...

My current 40x objective is an S 40, 0.65, 0.17...can I use an S Fl 40 Plan, 0.75, 0.17 ? Is there a big...

Hello all...David here. I'm new to this site as I recently purchased a used Nikon type-S microscope, with variable transformer, adjustable arm with external illuminator holder, base mounted illuminator and tungsten bulb (all in beautiful and working condition). The mirror is not included and I wish ...
