My interview with Zeiss

Hi all, just wanted to share my interview/images with Zeiss based around my vintage Zeiss universal Epi-DIC build. Hope you enjoy the images.

That's a great read! Thanks for sharing. I love it when our vintage beauties get some love in places like that.

Hi Nathan,
this is a very interesting and well written article with great images! My main instrument is a Phomi 1, second edition which is quite similar to your one. I have a couple of epi-DIC components, not all in good condition, but they work to some degree. Have you already described somewhere, how you have repaired your prisms?

Funny timing, I recognized the blue Zeiss immediately because Scarodactyl mentioned the restoration last weekend in the thread about my delaminated ultracondensers. Here is the link: viewtopic.php?t=8830

Hi Bob, I have on this forum. Hans posted a link to my earlier thread about rebuilding this scope. Scrolling through that thread will detail some of the steps I took to repair the prisms. Hope that helps.
