This is a brand new, factory sealed, Variscope Series 862 microscope: We have found this incredible new brand of premium quality microscopes and are now making them available for sale direct to the public with a special arrangement with the factory. The Variscope microscope family of optical instruments is made by one of the largest "private label" optical component fabricators in the world. Your microscope is made by the same technicians and on the same production line as optical instruments for the world's leading optical instrument brands. While this is the same instrument you might see in a science catalog at a vastly higher price, by developing the Variscope brand, the factory is able to sell the same product directly to us for much, much less. This microscope is brand new and has never been removed from the original factory packaging.
Premium Optics for High Quality Imaging: Included with the triple, click-stop revolving ball-bearing nosepiece are 3 multi-coated 160mm objective lenses. Unlike lower grade objectives that tend to show false colors, these achromatic lenses are specially designed to correct color aberrations and display a true-color image. You get 4x, 10x, and spring loaded 40x objective included with this microscope. For viewing, we provide a premium grade wide-field 10x (18mm) eyepiece. This allows for magnification ranges of 40x, 100x, and 400x. We offer optional eyepieces in our our store as well. We have optional wide field eyepieces available in 15x, 16x, and 20x powers, giving you an enormous range of possible magnifications to 800x.
Comfortable Ergonomic Microscope Design: Unlike traditional 'vertically' oriented monocular microscopes, this model is designed to make your microscope viewing as comfortable as possible. The main microscope head swivels 360 degrees for viewing from any angle, a feature that you will almost never see with microscopes in this price range. The microscope ocular itself sits at a comfortable 45 degree incline. Unlike cheaper models, this microscope features a fully-integrated coaxial coarse and fine focusing adjustment with cross roller guides. Focusing knobs on both the right and left side of the scope allow for easy adjustment with either the right or left hand.
Large Mechanical X-Y Slide Holder: Unlike most cheaper models on the market that have simple slide clips, this microscope has a stage with a fully mechanical X-Y axis slide holder. With this functionality, you can easily move the slide around on the stage with fine precision, no fumbling the slide under the clips. There is a graduated scale printed on the slide holder to allow you to maintain a record of the location of various structures on a particular slide. Most microscopes at this price range do not offer this feature.
Built-in Adjustable Intensity Incandescent Light: This microscope has a built-in 20 watt incandescent bulb, with adjustable intensity light controls. Beware of cheaper models that use have a simple on/off switch with no brightness controls. Two spare bulbs are included with your microscope. The microscope has a built-in spiral-type N.A. 1.2 Abbe condenser under the stage with an iris diaphragm. This advanced condenser gives you incredible control over the amount and focal length of light aimed at your specimen and is critical for high-powered magnification viewing. A swing-out filter holder is included as is a green viewing filter. A mirror is included and can be fitted for use as the lower light source for field applications where electric power is unavailable.
