3D MICROSCOPE IMAGES
THE BUSINESS END OF A SCOPE
This is a good old sturdy Vickers Microscope, or at least the part of it
where the specimen slides are placed for study. You can see the turret is
holding four objective lenses of different powers of magnification. Also,
note that the stage is a circular one - commonly used on a petrological
microscope designed to study rocks and minerals.
A more common sliding x-y stage can however be attached to this one for
easier study of other subjects.
A lot of the material seen on micscape will have been sourced via a
camera attached to this 'scope'.
