LED/Fluorescence Light Source & 1.5x Zoom & Camera adapter for Olympus VMZ Stereo Scope

#1 Post by pdxhiker » Mon Nov 21, 2016 5:37 pm

I purchased a used Olympus VMZ Microscope with 4x Zoom, it came with a external illuminator of 18W, does any one know what alternative light source, 1.5x Zoom and camera adapter works for this scope.

YOu can buy allot of different fiberoptic/LED ring illuminators. They are all over the price range, from $25 to $$$. They all work pretty well.

Update: I found this company has Olympus bard objective manufactured for this scope, its 1.5X, so should bump up the magnification to 15-60X without changing the eye piece 10x 23mm FOV. Any thoughts if this will reslut in just empty magnification or will keep the resolution, I can't find optical data for these objectives anywhere to check glass type, NA etc.
