This model is a ideal student stereo. The stereo eyetubes are inclined at 45 degrees
to allow ease of use. This MX1 is a cost effective introduction to quality stereomicroscopy.
The stereo head is equipped with x10 super widefield eyepieces and a x2 objective
pair providing an overall x20 magnification that can be extended to x10 to x120 with
additional eyepieces and objectives. The stand has a chrome column coarse focus and
a rack and pinion fine focus system. The stage has a rotatable black/white dissection
plate with stage clips. The focus mechanism has a tension adjustment system that
can be set to suit the individual. The interpupillary distance is adjustable between
55 to 75mm and one eyetube has dioptric adjustment. At x20 magnification the effective
working distance is approximately 57mm.
There are a wide range of accessories for the MX1 including measuring eyepieces and
adapters for CCTV on digital cameras.
