Re: Necessary dissuasive assistance is requested. Disassemble Leitz phaco Npl 25x objective.

Kirby. Good night and thanks You. I would not have imagined that it would be possible to overpolish the cylinder and as a consequence leave it too worn, but I do the polishing with cotton so it is very soft and then a quick wash with soap. I am sending you pictures of the results, I think is improve...

Re: Necessary dissuasive assistance is requested. Disassemble Leitz phaco Npl 25x objective.

Kirby. Shame on me, I'm very sick...after all I kept insisting and finally I managed to decipher the puzzle, all the elements came sliding out from the front...after using a few drops of solvent. Then I was marking in its exact orientation ,(well almost), cleaning with distilled water and liquid soa...

Re: Leitz 600 series condenser lens orientation

Henryr . I have been able to disarm both systems. One is older than the other, the one with the small springs is the "newest" one ,I also thought of a very easy way to reassemble the diaphragm blades very easily...Here are some pictures just like yours.

Re: Leitz 600 series condenser lens orientation

Hello,
The ones I have disassembled come with their original yellow grease, and when I clean and fix them I have re-greased them, with very little white lithium grease, grease them!

Kirby. Thank you for your kind assistance. It is quite true that the procedure becomes a bit stressful at times because the method is trial and error.... you start trying the most obvious and do not know what can happen in the next step, it's like a "I hope this is it, or "God nothing ends up broken...

Re: Necessary dissuasive assistance is requested. Disassemble Leitz phaco Npl 25x objective.

In the case of the phaco NPL 16x the whole procedure was very easy to disassemble because all the elements were sliding from the back one after another, then I cleaned them with a few drops of soap, distilled water and a little bit of isopropyl and they were super good but it was very simple just re...

Re: Necessary dissuasive assistance is requested. Disassemble Leitz phaco Npl 25x objective.

Hobbyst46 Thank you very much for the idea, do you think that to dismantle this lens i should start from the front or from the back? I was trying to hit it to see if the rear element would come out but it doesnt fall back. The front is too hard to unscrew ... suddenly if i added a few drops of solve...

Necessary dissuasive assistance is requested. Disassemble Leitz phaco Npl 25x objective.

Cordial greetings. Even though I was able to disarm other objectives, all of them achromatic and only 4x 10x 40x, and put them back to work cleaner than before and with the least possible damage against them. Never one with so many elements as this one, I think that NPLs have 10 or 12 elements , alw...

Obelia Hydrozoa "jellyfish"

Hello. I found these beautiful specimens in some abandoned fishing nets on the seashore. I put them under the Mitutoyo fs100 and with MplanApos 10x and 20x. Too bad my camera is a simple cell phone, but the images directly from the eyepiece are very satisfying. IMG_20200914_161215.jpg IMG_20200914_1...
