Re: WTB Olympus LWD 40X

Thanks Ross,
Looks interesting, I'll check into it and see if it would be close to parfocal and work with the olympus CK occulars.

Re: Equipment Help, phase contrast.

Hi Dawson,
I have an old Olympus inverted and would be interested in the phase sliders if you decide to get rid of them.

Re: A.O. Toric darkfield condenser

Thanks you guys, O.K. making some progress. Staying with the 4X and dropping the condenser waaay down has helped. One of the things that had me confused was the 10X. surprisingly I get full darkfield illumination right across the FOV, no vignetting whatsoever that I can detect. No little circle on m...

A.O. Toric darkfield condenser

I've acquired a used #1096 toric darkfield condenser and I'm a bit puzzled comparing it to my other DF condenser. It's my understanding that I should get a central circle of light with a 10X objective as I bring the oiled condenser up to the slide. With this one I get full darkfield across the entir...

Thanks Apo, Good info on the objectives. currently I have the 1016 50X/iris and the 1311 100x. I've seen the 1079 come up at reasonable prices but I think long term The 1014 100X/iris will be the way to go, it's on the wishlist. I agree the ability to back off from the 100X to a 50 without a cleanup...

Re: A.O. bits wanted

Well, the idea of a self illuminating condenser grew on me, After hearing repeatedly about the 110 being a bit anemic trying to handle the higher power objectives I decided this would be worth pursuing. As a result I made an offer on the 218f listed on Ebay and it was accepted. Hopefully I can make ...

I would certainly like to find a way to compare with the forks on my 110. Has anyone ever taken calipers to a set of forks that fit the 214 or 218? A couple more questions if I may, According to Kirby the manual for the 214 says for 40x and above. Does this restriction apply to the 218 as well? I us...
