This is the entry-level version of the classic Bausch & Lomb stereo zoom microscope Pod. It has a zoom range of 1x to 2.5x. Magnification can be further varied by exchanging the oculars (B&L has eyepiece pairs from 10x to 33x designed for use with the stereo pods), or by threading an auxiliary objective adapter onto the front of the pod. The later are available in various magnifications from 0.3x to 2x, but they alter the working distance of the pod. This yields a magnification range of 3x to 160x depending on the combination of oculars and auxiliary lenses selected.

These pods are in excellent cosmetic condition and exceptional optical/mechanical condition.They represent the second generation instruments with all metal construction with the smooth black finish on both top and base. Typically, the dust seals beneath the ocular tubes are no longer present (the earlier seals tended to dry out and crumble away). Alignment is very good. Fully cleaned and checked out for proper operation.

Pod catalog number is 31-26-93. With standard 10x oculars (not included) the field diameter ranges from 20mm at 1x to 8mm at 2.5x, with a working distance of 100mm. Instrument remains in focus throughout the zoom range.

To make a complete instrument you need a focusing yoke (included with some of the simpler stand versions), a support stand, and a pair of oculars. Optional needs would include an illumination source. Inquire regarding the availability of complete systems or multiple units.
