The XPL1500 trinocular microscope is a high end microscope with an excellent price tag, it features 40X to 600X magnification range due to an excellent pair of eye pieces and objectives, as well as a rotatable stage, transmitted light source and polarising capabilities. These features and many more make it suitable for use in earth science educational sectors and field research.
An excellent routine and educational grade polarising microscope featuring a trinocular head with a photoport for a camera and 40X to 600X magnification range. For the eye pieces, a pair 10X eyepieces with a crosshair are featured as well as , 4 plan achromatic, strain-free, centerable objectives 4X, 10X, 40X and 60X, giving you the 40X to 600X range. A 360° rotatable stage is present, as expected but also featured on this model are research level 1/4 & 1 wavelength retardation plates which helps the user with assessment of optical path differences in birefringent specimens. A bertrand lens is also installed, which allows the device to align the various optical components. Also included as standard are a retractable analyser in the head and rotatable polarisers. The transmitted light source is emitted via a 6 volt, 20 watt halogen light with a coarse and fine focus adjuster and a limit stopper. A highly robust construction will ensure knocks to the device will not faulter its accuracy, in all, it is an excellent microscope with a range of capabilities, ideal for use in education and research sectors, particularly for the observation of geological thin sections.
