Re: Zeiss Photomicroscope I

Thank you to Charles and MicroBob. The more I can learn, the better. I would love to learn how to use the fluorescent system in the near future. I keep looking at it and wondering what exactly it is capable of doing. :)

Re: Zeiss Photomicroscope I

Thanks for all the information, Charles. I have all the transformers and other boxes that I assume control the camera. I know how to hook it all up, but I have no clue how to work the fluorescent system. This is WAY more microscope than I need as a beginner, but it is also probably the last microsco...

Re: Zeiss Photomicroscope I

Bob, If I get a chance today I will take it off and take a picture of the inside. I'll then try to put it together without the part. I am new to all of this, but in all my research I have not found a part like this one. The man I purchased it from had been in microscopy for 60 years, and this was on...

New to microscopy

Hello all. I am new to microscopy. Well, I had a little Sears microscope when I was a kid, but that hardly counts. We could never afford a real microscope, then music took over all my spare time. Recently, I came across an old Zeiss Photomicroscope listed locally. Locally being southern Manitoba. It...

Re: Zeiss Photomicroscope I

Bob, I moved it right away. It is now on a MUCH stronger table. I am a complete newbie when it comes to microscopes, so please excuse the ridiculous questions, like, what is a nosepiece bayonet? :) I will look into removing that part. It is marked Zeiss, so I have no clue where it should go if not t...

Re: Zeiss Photomicroscope I

Wes, I have no clue why it is set up the way it is. This is how I found it. I can check on the objectives and post them this evening.

I would appreciate ANY advice from anyone more knowledgable than myself. That would basically be everyone here with an opinion. :)

Re: Greetings from Winnipeg, Canada

We are getting by. We have all 5 kids home, trying to home school now. Luckily, this isn't the first time we've done this, so it's not so bad. I'm still learning the ins and outs of the microscope, but so far we have really enjoyed it. Being able to incorporate it into their science learning has bee...

Re: Greetings from Winnipeg, Canada

I'm new here as well, and from just south of Winnipeg myself. I recently purchased a Zeiss Photomicroscope in Winnipeg, and I'm trying to figure out how it all works. What a complex microscope for a beginner, but for $300 in the condition it's in, I couldn't pass it up. The kids and I have really en...
