XTX-1C Binocular, Single Magnification, Stereo Microscope
The XTX-1C stereo microscope provides great value for such high performance. These are classed as single magnification microscopes which can have a range of auxiliary objectives and eyepieces inserted to achieve different magnifications and working distances. Each microscope is equipped with high quality glass optics, a sturdy metal stand and built-in top and bottom halogen lamp illumination. The tough microscopes are designed for observations of small objects such as entomological collections, pond dipping, plant material, microfossils, rocks and industrial inspection. The simplicity of design and robustness of build makes it particularly suitable for use by the young enthusiast and in schools and colleges.
Every microscope is equipped with a pair of objectives mounted in a removable, rectangular objective cartridge and a pair of wide-field eyepieces. The binocular head is mounted on the focus mechanism which, in turn is mounted on a vertical pillar. The head can be moved up the pillar to accommodate larger specimens. The head has interpupillary distance adjustment and the left eyepiece has diopter adjustment. This makes the microscope suitable for prolonged use without undue eyestrain.
A highly popular choice for schools, colleges & amateurs.
