Zeiss Universal which photo tube?

#1 Post by Unseen World » Tue Oct 27, 2020 7:05 am

Hey guys, I have a Canon EOS-M with microscope adapter ( https://www.ebay.com/itm/264286468917 ) that I use on my AO scopes. The camera adapter has built in relay lens and 23.2mm tube to fit into the AO trinocular tubes. Everything works great.

I'm trying to find a photo tube for the Zeiss Universal that will work with this setup. I have seen a couple of pictures with Universals that have a similar looking photo tube to the AO trinocular tube (picture below), but can't find one for sale, or the part number.

Anyone know of where I can find one, or what the cat# is?

Thanks guys!

The first option, although more expensive, is the best since you can adjust the tube to be parfocal. Both come up on ebay now and then.
