Stereo XTX-1C 20x magnification Microscope -
This is classed as a single magnification microscope but is expandable up to 70x by means of different magnification eyepieces and auxillary objectives. Supplied with wide field 10x eyepieces and a 2x objective, giving 20x magnification, this is the ideal specification for carrying out dissection of bird pellets, in particular owl pellets. The microscope is equipped with high quality glass, a sturdy metal stand and built in top and bottom halogen lamp illumination. The simplicity of design and robustness of build makes it particularly suitable for use by the young enthusiast and in schools and colleges. 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 a diopter adjustment. This makes the microscope suitable for prolonged use without undue syestrain.
