4x-80x Binocular Stereo Zoom Microscope with Dual Lighting
This is a brand new, factory sealed, Variscope Series 858 microscope. The Variscope microscope family of optical instruments is made by one of the largest "private label" optical fabricators in the world. This microscope is designed for professional grade viewing of a wide range of specimens. This microscope is manufactured with a .8x to 4x stereo zoom objective made from premium ground optical glass. Used in conjunction with the two sets of included ultra-wide field stereo eyepieces 10x and 20x power, along with a .5x auxiliary objective, you can achieve a zoom magnification range of 4x through 80x right out of the box. With the included .5x auxiliary objective, you increase the working distance to 145mm and dramatically increase the field of view so you can see more of the specimen. The main microscope head swivels 360 degrees for viewing from any angle, and the head itself sits at a comfortable 45 degree incline. The eyepieces sit in a gemel type assembly, allowing for maximum flexibility in adjusting the interpupillary distance. There are dual diopter focusing adjustments, and molded rubber eyecups are provided for your comfort. The focusing and zoom knobs are on both the right and left side of the scope allowing for easy adjustment with either the right or left hand. This microscope has dual built-in infinitely variable halogen lighting. The upper and lower light sources are controlled independently. A unique feature of this microscope is that the upper light can be removed or aimed independently. This enables you to make fine lighting adjustments from above and below the specimen. This microscope includes a plastic dust cover to keep your microscope in clean dust-free condition. The microscope also comes with a frosted glass specimen holder and also a reversible black & white specimen plate.
