The MS-160UN Binocular Biological Microscope Kit from Carson combines a 40-1600x biological microscope and a universal digiscoping adapter for smart devices. Together they comprise a versatile kit that enables you not only to view your samples with your eyes but also to take pictures and videos with your favorite smart device.
The binocular viewing MS-160UN Biological Microscope features a head with Siedentopf style interpupillary adjustment, four objectives, a variable bottom LED illumination, a 360° rotating head with 30° inclined oculars, and two wide-field 10x and 20x eyepieces. The included 100x objective requires immersion oil to function properly and to provide top resolution. This microscope also features a 40x-1600x total magnifying power range, a wide metal 5.1x5.5" mechanical stage with a movable precision specimen bracket, and a 1.25 Abbe condenser. To provide you with more control over illumination and image detail, the microscope's stage has a built-in iris diaphragm and includes a blue filter. With coarse-fine focusing and a precision specimen bracket with vernier position dials, you will be able to obtain crisp image clarity and accurately move your sample across the field of view in two dimensions. The power adapter is compatible with 110-240V international electrical outputs and does not require an optional voltage converter.
To offer you an opportunity to take pictures and videos of your samples with your smart device, this kit includes an IS-100 HookUpz Universal Adapter for digiscoping, but does not include the EVO case. This adapter is compatible with most smartphones to the microscope, except phablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Note, iPhone 6 Plus, and Lumina 920. Additionally, the adapter fits most sports optics that have eyepieces with diameters from 20mm to 58mm, but it will not work with riflescopes. An added convenience is a self-centering clamp that helps you to align the optical path of the microscope's eyepiece with a camera of your smart device. Using two point-alignment lock knobs, the adapter needs to be aligned only once and ensures repeatability of optical alignment for subsequent use. With a single-arm clamp, repeated attachment and quick-release of your device are quick and easy.
