Re: Hi from Washington state

Good luck with the Nikon. You should be able to do fine with that. I hope you are making some progress. Up in Washington, you should be able to find many interesting microscopic things to look at. If you like A&P, you can find many interesting prepared tissue specimens, many are from mice or rats, b...

B&L Stereo microscope-selling

I received this B&L Stereomicroscope. I don't know much about this model. I picked this up in a trade. Seems to work well, and the illuminator is functional. The paint is a little scuffed up- but still a great microscope. There is a brand new plexiglass plate for it. It's about 1 mm too big, can eas...

Re: Zeiss Universal

Start the alignment at the epi-illuminator lamp. Then go to the epi-condenser. At that point, you will have the epi-illuminator tube coming off of the objective holder; just align it by eye to start with-so that the light is going down through the objective. At this point, make a small reference mar...

OK, I thought there were three, but you are right, there are four grub screws. If you have no marks to go by, you can still line it up, but it's a longer process. I've been able to take them off, and change them between microscopes. That being said, it can take a little trial and error to get it jus...

How would you center the optovar on this stand?
There are three little centering screws on the bottom of the head. They often each have a retaining screw covering them. Just adjust slowly and carefully.

Re: Zeiss Axiomat for sale

You don't have to lift it, just look through it :lol: .

Another good thing is the side port can be used for a camera, similar to a trinocular on a normal microscope.

I'm selling a Zeiss Axiomat. The was an engineering marvel of the 1980s, way ahead of its time. Fewer than 600 or so ever made. Original cost was around $100,000.

Yes, that is the fine focus mechanism. I'm going to use the stand for my Tessovar macro lens. I want to attach farther back to the solid block of metal because of the weight of the camera and lens. The coarse focus should be enough since there is a fine focus on the Tessovar mount already. I have to...

This a Zeiss part that came off of an industrial machine, perhaps microhardness or metrology. It came on a recent stand I purchased, which is destined to become a macro lens holder. I don't need it. I don't know much about it. the threads are RMS and the dovetail is 52 mm. $10 plus shipping, if it l...

OK, some more clues... The scope does not seem to be modified. All parts are fitted and assembled, and finished with Zeiss factory precision. The height of the column is 24 inches. The objective arm is mounted on a dovetail that allows approximately 1.5 mm of movement in the Z-axis, perhaps to preve...

Thanks All,

This definitely "Made in West Germany". I know that particular label indicates a certain year range, but I don't know my history well enough to narrow it down. 1945-1991?

Zeiss mystery scope

Here is my new acquisition. I have not seen another one, and I am not sure what is is. It has a micrometer of the fine focus, so I'm guessing some sort of industrial measuring microscope. Electrical connections on the back and side of the stand- could be anything... The stage is missing. The binocul...

Re: Inverted Stereomicroscope-Got it!

OK, Put together the inverted stereomicroscope. An old Zeiss SM off the back shelf, a 90 degree connector from an OPMI, and a binocular from a ophthalmologists' slit lamp. All fits together mechanically, and actually works optically!

Just need to build a stage now!

Re: Zeiss DIC slider

That might work. Parfocality is not a concern. This objective will end up as part of the illuminating system. I could probably use any brand of objective- it just needs to be about 10-15x with long working distance, and RMS threads. I'll shop through eBay to try to find something suitable. The will ...

Re: Zeiss DIC slider

Thanks 75RR and PeteM,

That's helpful.
I don't want to buy the lambda plate. I'm thinking of machining a plate out of aluminum.

This is for my DIY Lightsheet illumination project. I need to put a patterned screen in the rear focal plane of the objective. I thought this might be the easiest way.
