I have the exact same stand and coarse focuser. Mine came with a monocular head and a ~3x long-working-distance objective that look typical for a mechanical shop microscope (although I guess they could also be used for hardness tests). The optics were not particularly good, and chromatic aberration ...

[...] Why is serious amateur microscopy not in the mainstream as it was 100-150 years ago? At that time, and earlier during the Victorian period, well-to-do people were expected to cultivate wide-ranging interests in science, history, literature etc. For example, see Lynn Barber 1980: The heyday of...

I suppose it would be necessary to use the adapter if using a photo eyepiece as Scarodactyl suggested. With...

P9080003c.JPG A colorful example of delamination of some internal optics of a Zeiss Photomicroscope (probably one of the telan lenses of the magnification changer, or one of the optics for the film camera built into the stand). I had been gradually building up and completing this microscope for sev...

So far, transmission optical microscopy has not been one of my main interests, but now that I am retired and will have more time to spend on my hobbies, this might change. I worked over 30 years as a university researcher and teacher in geosciences in a handful of countries, mostly Sweden. Functiona...
