Re: Urgent! Labovert Leitz - please advise!

Laboverts are very nice scopes. They even have their own patent: US patent 4,619,503, which also covers the Fluovert (the fluorescence version). The idea was to make an inverted stand more like the usual upright scope, which would lessen confusion when moving back-and-forth between the two types. T...

Re: B&L Balplan microscope - newer Flat Field or older planachromat?

Thank you so much for reply, Apochronaut. Do I understand correctly, that modern achromat objectives are “flat field” in older B&L models? I’m attaching pics of both microscopes and lenses - newer on the left, older on the right in all images. (newer and older - is a judgement based on level of visi...

I came into possession of 2 Balplan microscopes - older one with all planachromatic objectives and newer with 4x and 40x flat field. I am an avid reader of this forum, and did read all Balplan related topics. Older microscope has indeed older version of planachromatic. Shall I swap newer Flat Field ...
