Available in either binocular or trinocular format, they include Meiji's infinity corrected optical system with four Plan Epi BD objectives and two SWH 10x eyepieces for magnification levels of 50x, 100x, 200x and 500x. Illumination includes vertical and transmitted 30W halogen. Lifetime Limited Warranty.
A Siedentopf-type binocular head is available in binocular or trinocular format. The oculars are inclined at 30° with a diopter on the left ocular for individual eye focusing. Interpupillary adjustment is 53mm - 75mm. Two SWH 10x eyepieces (FN 22) are included. The four objectives are infinity corrected Plan Epi 5x, BD10x, BD20x, and BD50x set in a ball-bearing mounted quintuple nosepiece.
An 80/20 beamsplitter for the trinocular tube can be engaged for photo work. (100% to eyetubes or 80% to phototube & 20% to the eyetube.) 30mm ID eyetube. Please note that the trinocular port requires an adapter appropriate for your camera.
