JUST ARRIVED! LEICA 1200XL SCIFINDER MICROSCOPE KITThis SciFinder microscope is made by Leica's Cambridge Instruments. It's constructed with all glass optics and a dicast aluminum body, similar to the quality standards used in Leica;s professional research microscopes. The stand, viewing tube and mechanical parts are all metal and corrosion resistant and is designed to provide years of rugged use from your child's first school science fair project and beyond.This is the instrument to encourage your young scientist to uncover the exciting microscopic world. The precision crafted SciFinder encourages observation and appreciation of science from the most elementary to the most sophisticated levels of understanding. The kit provides the investigative tools needed to begin the step-bystep process of scientific discovery.SciFinder optics are all anti-reflection coated for high contrast and clear crisp images. 4 high power objectives rotate on a turret and are color coded for easy identification. With the included 10x wide field eyepiece, you will be able to magnify specimens from 50 to 1200 times. The longer objectives are spring-loaded and retractable to protect slides from breakage. The microscope also maintains parfocality from one magnification to another so the specimen stays in constant focus (just another of the professional features that makes this such a great
buy)Here are some of the additional features and items included in the kit:
Dual concave/plano glass mirror to concentrate and direct illumination to the specimen; battery operated illuminator for those times when an external light source isn't available; four aperture, click-stop diaphragm to control the amount of light entering the field of view; fingertip controlled rack and pinion focusing for fast, smooth adjustments; Explorer's Guide full of suggestions for the use and care of the instrument; basic microscope techniques like making slides; forceps; prepared slides; test tubes and other useful tools. Unused. Makes a great educational gift.

ZEISS 6X30 BINOCULAR PARTS KIT This kit includes all the non-optical parts you need to fix your Zeiss binoculars or make like new, with the exception of the body. These original Zeiss parts are all unused in the original packaging. 26 pieces included all in your very own brown paper bag!

M1 POLARIZING FILTER FOR M15 & M17 NIB 1948 A great find for the vintage U.S. Military binocular collector! Has two sets of mounted Polaroid filters with a side control to rotate one filter with respect to the other, and each set rotates at the same time. This should gradually lighten or darken the incoming light that goes to your binocular objectives. However, these are old and some of the filter material may have deteriorated. Manufactured by Beck-Lee Corporation, this M1 filter assembly attaches over the eyepieces of the M15 and M17 7x50 U.S. military binoculars (those without eye guards). Each unit measures 4" wide x 3 3/4" high x 1" deep, with black-enameled metal frame with dual 3/4" diameter glass filters, knurled focus tabs, and 1/4" rear wells with ten metal pressure tabs for press-on application of the assembly. SNL Stock No. F238-5800227, stamped July 1948. Made by the Beck-Lee Corporation. Nice military collectable. Complete with original box. Supplies are limited.
