There is a Reichert field mikroscope on offer now: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Reisemikroskop-Kleinmikroscop-Reichert-aus-1948/113587222210
Not mine.

And here a Meopta one: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Schul-bzw-Kurs-Mikroskop-MEOPTA-AZ-2-hervorragendes-kompaktes-Feld-Mikroskop/264141225394

The Meopta is a good price too.
It is much bigger than the Reichert, but also more convenient and powerfull. Both have 3 non-RMS objectives in a revolver.

Here is a link to the two types of Goren microscope: Polarization and "biological". They are both binocular.

I want one, but don't like the fact that no retail price and only one photo is provided. It would be expensive, if they price it based on market competition. I probably asked them a few tears ago (cannot remember) and considered it too expensive.

Looks like standard DIN optics? Would be nice know LED implementation, head and condenser dovetail diameter as well, for DIY modification.

It will be difficult to earn money with something as the Goren microscope and at the same time one would all the time have the risk that one of the components is no longer available. But sometimes the economical settings are different. Someone develops it for himself and his employer or institute. Production may be carried out in a university workshop where the pricing is arranged between academic colleagues. Shipping is done by people who are there anyway...

When they would spend more energy on marketing they could probably sell quite a few. But then again they would create a new economic setting, quality assurance, customer service and so on.

I like it anyway! :D

Hi together,
there is a cheap Lomo field microscope on ebay: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Lomo-MBD-1-Mikroskop-microscope-mit-Objektiven-und-Okularen-in-Koffer-case/312451731755
I would expect to have to relubricate it for optimal movement but this has to be expected with most older microscopes.
This is a copy of the Zeiss field microscope. You get a full featured lab microscope fitted into a small but heavy box. It comes with a 9:1 plan objective and an additional 40:1 water immersion objective. It is a nice microscope to take to the holiday, at least when you are not going on a hiking trip. To fit it in the vox you have to remove tube and objectives so you can't just grab it and start like with a Wild M11. At home you could use it as you single microscope, may be with an additional bino tube and som accessories. There are nice apos and 5-seat nosepieces available for comparatively little money.
It is about half the usual price.

Bob
