How to detach Olympus U-PMTVC from TR-30?

#1 Post by Potatu » Mon Sep 05, 2016 12:19 pm

I'd like to remove this entire black camera attachment section from the microscope head.

Any idea how?

There are a couple of holes as though a tool may be required.

Any info/insight would be much appreciated.

The two screws on the camera adapter hold it to the dovetail of the triocular body. I think it's a 2mm allen wrench that will work.

That's a BX series adapter that works fine with the BH series.
The Olympus BX standard hex wrench is 3 mm.

Thanks for the correction, Tom. I was too lazy to go to the shop to measure one, so I guessed.
