American Optical 1860 Epi-Star Microscope.

This is an American Optical EpiStar materials inspection microscope. It does not include anything other than the basic stand..

The Model 1860 Industrial Microscope stand has a very large yoke and is able to accommodate stages with up to 6 by 6 inches of travel. The stage is rigidly clamped to the microscope base and does not move during focusing. Instead, the nosepiece carrying the objectives is the only part that moves. The infinity corrected optics of the system allow moving the objectives relative to the rest of the stand without any loss in optical corrections..

The stand has a special super-long-life 20w halogen lamp (life rated at 10,000 hours) that is situated at the back of the stand. A filter turret has four positions one open, one diffusion disk, a daylight blue filter, and a strong green filter. A fully adjustable field iris is situated just forward of the filter turret.. The illumination train has a swing-out beam-splitter used for brightfield vertical illumination. When swung to one side using the lever on the right side of the microscope, the illumination flux is directed to an annular mirror just above the revolving nosepiece. The nosepiece will accommodate five objectives using RMS threads. The continuously regulating transformer is built into the base of the stand.

Stage, stage carrier bracket, observation tube, and optics will need to be sourced. Please check our website for available components.
