This binocular microscope is nearly identical to the Sonlight Ultra microscope (250-40) with only three major exceptions. Includes an adjustable binocular eyepiece, a cluster of four objective lenses and has separate coarse and fine focus knobs.
- This student microscope includes a cluster of four objective lenses instead of three: 4X, 10X, 40XR, and 100XR.
- Includes separate coarse and fine focus knobs whereas the Sonlight Ultra uses an integrated system in which the fine focus knob lies within the coarse focus knob.
- Includes a binocular eyepiece instead of a monocular eyepiece. The former eyepiece you view with two eyes, the latter with one eye. (Similar to the difference between binoculars and telescopes.)
- The binocular eyepiece of this educational microscope is equipped with inter-pupillary and graduated diopter adjustment. In plain English, this means you can adjust the distance between the eyepieces for a perfect fit for you and your students!
You will need Immersion Oil for use with the 100XR lens.
