Zeiss Universal for sale

#1 Post by Wes » Thu Sep 05, 2019 6:22 am

I have nothing to do with this but to me it seems like a great opportunity for someone in the US to acquire a fine research grade microscope at a good price.

Looks nice, particularly like the dual lighting system.

OK, I like it. Does anyone know what that is sticking out from the intermediate tube above the turret? Any guesses on the objectives or the condenser? Looks like nice stuff!

The protrusion is a 3-layer slide holding multiple filters.

The condenser looks like a flip-top, hard to be sure though. As to the objectives, a 10x and a 6,3x is as far as I would be willing to go.

Contact seller. He should be willing to provide you with better images.

Went for a very reasonable amount.

If the winner is a forum member it would be nice to see some better photos of it.

It also has the seven hole nosepiece...a very cheap catch! Also Objectives seem to be Planapos 10 and 25 😀
Congrats to the winner of the acrion.
