1879 Price List

No. 1 Binocular microscope is of first class quality in every respect. The stand is firm and free from tremor under observation, even while the adjustment of apparatus may be going on. The binocular mechanism is very superior, realizing both the stereoscopic and perspective views of the object with remarkable ease and perfection. In addition to a rectangular motion of one inch in each direction and rotation by hand, the whole stage rotates concentrically and independently by means of a rack and pinion on a circular plate, graduated so as to form a goniometer or position micrometer. The secondary or substage has adjusting screws for centering all the supplementary apparatus which it receives, and affords facilities for the manipulation and use in the most efficient and convenient manner, possessing also the means of rotation by rack and pinion, with graduated divisions at the circumference. The fine adjustment is of the most delicate and perfect construction, the index reading off differences in the focal position of the objective to the five thousandth part of an inch, perceptible to the observer's eye. Includes 4 eyepieces....$320

If with single body, 2 eyepieces.....$260
