Reichert Zetopan Polarising Microscope
This is one of the classic microscopes and equipped for geological examination makes it relatively rare. Finished in ‘signature’ classic black enamel, the general body work is excellent for its age with just two small chips to the large base. The stage does show the wear that would be expected with the examination of geology specimens. The chrome work is exceptional and the incident light path has polariser and analyser filters in very good condition. The base has the usual ‘Epi’ and ‘Trans’ lighting options that can be used jointly with the ‘Mix’ paddle This microscope is all original including the transformer box and 2 light bulbs are included.
The large circular stage has a centre ‘pop out’ circle so that thin sections can be examined with transmitted lighting although there is no condenser present . The incident light path has a slide in/out polarising filter and a slide in/out analyser that can be rotated and crossed with the polariser through 90 degrees. A good set of 190mm tubelength dovetail objectives are included with magnifications x5, x11, x22, x32 and x60. The trinocular head has the usual part rotation and there is a lever to bring a camera into the optical path. A pair of widefield Reichert x6 eyepieces. The large circular rotating stage has lateral adjustment. This microscope is now a serious collectors item and as such is offered at a really competitive price.
Brunel SP110P Polarising Microscope
This is a new instrument and a new model that has been used only by ourselves for assessment purposes. A trinocular polarising microscope with an elegant design and a specification that is outstanding for its price range. Circular rotating stage with centring screws and a four position turret with three of the positions having individual objective centring. Achromatic 160mm tube length strain free objectives x4, x10, x40 and x60 with a pair of x10 wide field eyepieces and a third eyepiece with a focusing cross hair. The polarising filter is attached to the bottom of the substage condenser is graduated and rotates through 360 degrees. The analyser is on a push/pull lever which allows it to be crossed with the polariser and also to be removed from the optical path. Low position coarse and fine focus controls. Retardation plates and quartz wedge.

Meiji ML9300 Trinocular
This is an advanced specification trinocular polarising microscope with both transmitted and incident illumination systems providing both bright and dark field incident lighting and bright field transmitted lighting . The incident system is controlled by a stand alone 6v 50 watt transformer. Both systems have a double iris for Kohler illumination. The objectives are bright/dark field semi-

A good example of this popular Japanese made microscope. Kyowa are known for the quality of their mechanical and optical parts and this example is in very good condition with only some scuffs to the stage where the spring loaded slide arm has moved back and forth over the years. The microscope has 6-

Reichert Zetopan Trinocular
This is one of the great classic microscopes of our time. Built in a modular way these microscopes can be adapted for all applications. This is one of the later models with the 12 volt 100 watt illumination system and has the original Reichert transformer box which is unusual these days. Mechanically this microscope is in excellent condition. The only negative is that there are some marks on the paint of the base. Apart from the microscope is in very good condition. Objectives x20 (n.a. 0.65), x40 (n.a. 0.65), x63 (oil immersion)(n.a. 1.00) and x100 (oil immersion)(n.a.1.25). With x8 plan eyepieces. Kohler illumination and an epi illumination system that only needs the incident light unit. A nice microscope.
