Optiphot head banger

#1 Post by blekenbleu » Thu Sep 22, 2022 1:04 pm

For a change of pace, M Plan objectives and vertical illuminator were removed
and 160 tube length objectives installed,
but trinocular head corners collide with quintuple RMD objective turret:

Binocular head corners clear, and
Optiphot quintuple nosepiece turrets on eBay have thinner plastic outer grips;
perhaps this turret was intended for inverted frames?

That nosepiece isn't intended for the finite Optiphot series. Rather it's for the infinite semiconductor inspection Optiphot 100 series and above. The dovetail will fit, but the dovetail-RMS mount distance is too far, and will deviate from TL160mm.

Thanks, that explains poor parfocality.

This nosepiece is not compatible with the Optiphot series. Rather, it refers to the Optiphot 100 series and higher for inspection of an infinite number of semiconductors the backrooms

So....are there (non- metallurgical) nosepieces that will fit the Optiphot 100, for 160 tube lengths?

It's all the same dovetail, I imagine the optiphot 2 ones should fit fine.
