Novex RZ series Bino
The Novex RZ series Bino can be supplied in two models:
This binocular stereomicroscope is very suitable for getting acquainted with the world of microscopy. All kinds of tissues, fossils and textures can easily be observed under this microscope. The RZ has a zoom lens with 0.65 to 4.5x magnification. It comes standard with a C-mount adapter with built-in lens. When you use the third tube for your camera, for example, the image remains visible in an eyepiece. In combination with the WF 10x / 20 eyepieces with diopter correction this is an excellent tool for the amateur microscopist. It has a field of view of 4.4 to 50 mm and has a free working distance of 90 mm. It comes with a dust cover and eyecups.
PL and SF tripod - with or without illumination
Novex developed two tripods, the PL and the SF. Both models are equipped with an object table with a diameter of 30mm and two clamps. In addition, they have a 260mm chromed tripod rod. The biggest. The PL version, however, has no illumination. The SF version, on the other hand, is equipped with a striking adjustable 10 watt 6-volt halogen lighting with mirror reflector and day filter. In addition, he has a transmitted 5 Watt 6400 K fluorescent daylight lighting with a built-in transformer for 230V. The lighting is not adjustable.
A binocular microscope uses two tubes, so that you can view the sample with both eyes. A stereomicroscope is always a binocular microscope but should not be confused with a binocular, biological microscope.
A stereomicroscope always uses two eyepieces, but in contrast to a binocular biological microscope, a stereomicroscope has two separate optical light paths (with of course two objectives and two eyepieces) that cause the image in the left eyepiece to be slightly different than in the right eyepiece. . These ensure that the image in the left eyepiece deviates slightly from the image in the right eyepiece, resulting in a three-dimensional image of the object being viewed.
It is not recommended to use a camera with a binocular microscope because the light is distributed in a binocular microscope over the two tubes and light is lost. In a stereomicroscope, the light differs from the left and right eyepieces. If you want to use a camera (in the future), you should consider a trinocular microscope or (if the budget is not sufficient) a monocular microscope.
