Zeiss Universal/Photomicroscope stage?

#1 Post by Unseen World » Sat Oct 17, 2020 5:38 am

Hey guys, I'm piecing together a Photomicroscope, I'm confused on the stages that will fit. I have seen people say Lomo stage will fit? What is Lomo? :lol: I just want to look at normal slides, I don't need all the fancy rotating. Everything on ebay is like $300+ for a stage, which seems crazy. There any stage on a budget that I could use?

Any info would be great.

Thanks

Most Zeiss stages will fit your Zeiss Universal/Photomicroscope stand. The main thing is you need the stage holder which clips onto your focus block.
Here is one on ebay with the holder:
For $90 plus shipping with the holder: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Microscope-Sta ... SwNcpfhGhu

If you already have the holder, you can bolt most any Zeiss stage on there.

Awesome, that's great to hear! Yeah, thankfully mine came with the Stage Holder.
