Top stage light.

#1 Post by DonSchaeffer » Tue Sep 01, 2020 5:23 pm

I once thought that microscopes don't respond well to top stage light. Well I was wrong. I bough a good inspection flashlight and mounted it on my desk so it is aimed exactly at the specimen from the side. This illumination is enough so I don't need any substage light, but can also supplement substage light. It is extreme side light. I do have contrast issues but I have to experiment.
