Illumination System: 

This equipment currently is fitted with fluorescent illumination. The lights are on both sides and are easily adjustable to create incident illumination on the specimen. However, as an option, two fiber optic cable holders also exist, one on each side. We are currently not including a fiber optic illuminator with this microscope. However, we have both 110V and 220V fiber optic illuminators that will work. Contact us for your specific needs.


Specimen - Bullet and Cartridge Holder: 

This comparison microscope has a stage on both sides. On top of the stage is the specimen (bullet and cartridge) holder. The bullets and cartridges are mounted here for examination and comparison. The X -Y stage movement knobs are used for moving the bullet (or cartridge) to get it in the proper field of view.



This is a reconditioned used microscope. It is several years old. However, it is in excellent working condition.

We do not have the actual user manual for this equipment. However, Leica has a new model that has some similar features. Reviewing this manual will benefit in the understanding of the Leitz model. Click this link: Leica FS M Comparison Microscope Operating Manual
