The 205-RLED Cordless Microscope from National Optical is a three-objective cordless microscope with a 45° inclined monocular, and a 10x eyepiece with an 18 mm wide field of view. The three objectives are 4x, 10x, and 40xR, and feature achromatic lenses which reduce color distortions introduced by imperfections of optical elements. Reducing these color distortions allows you to see sharper images with better color fidelity. The retractable 40xR objective has a spring-loaded lens which will retract when it touches the slide thereby protecting the lens and the slide. The parfocalled and parcentered design allows for switching objectives without having to realign your sample and without losing focus. The microscope also features a fine and coarse focusing and a platform stage with two spring-loaded coupled slide clips.
To see details of your specimens more easily, the microscope has an LED illumination system with adjustable brightness. The light intensity it delivers is equivalent to that of a 20W incandescent bulb. The white light from the bottom LED emitter is collimated by a 0.65 NA Abbe condenser. Located underneath the stage is a disc diaphragm with apertures of different sizes. It allows you to change the width of the illumination beam which helps you tune the image contrast when using different magnifying powers.
Included with the microscope are three rechargeable AA NiMH batteries, a wall power adapter, a dustcover, and two Allen wrenches for rack stop and eyepiece socket tension adjustment. To recharge your microscope's batteries, just connect the microscope to the wall power adapter.
