Dissecting Microscope: Senior College type, round base, complete with 2 eye-pieces 10x and 20x in wooden case. Available in brass parts also.
A dissecting microscope used by biology students for fine dissection work or close study of small organisms. The high eye point lenses are mounted on a jointed arm, which can scan the whole stage area. The wide glass stage has two spring clips and a reversible sub-stage mirror/opal face illuminator giving good lighting to objects from natural to artificial lighting. The rack and pinion mechanism is enclosed within the stage support pillar and operated by a knob on either side of the Pinion spindle. Detachable rests on either side of the stage provide steadying support for hands during fine dissection work.
