Through the microscope


Waiting for an MX7T stereomicroscope to arrive from Brunel microscopes. 

Excited much? Why yes, I am!

WIth my 5X, 10X, 15X and 20X eyepieces I shall be able to go from 10-80X magnification. More than enough for most purposes. 

I only wish it could do 5X magnification. Does anyone sell 2.5X eyepieces? I’m sure they are available if you pay enough money. What I really mean is are they available at a non-silly price?

It’s an ex-demonstration microscope so I got it a little cheaper than I would have done otherwise. It’s only been used by the folks at Brunel so I know it will be in good condition. They’re very good. I recommend them. 

I’m hoping it arrives before my husband gets home from work so I can pop it in the cupboard before he can throw his arms up in horror and say “ANOTHER MICROSCOPE!
