Before the unification of Germany, there were two Zeiss factories. Carl Zeiss located in Oberkochen and Carl Zeiss GmbH located in Jena. This section is for the Oberkochen products often referred to as West German Zeiss.

Zeiss Demonstration Eyepiece

A Carl Zeiss teaching eyepiece adapter. The central eyepiece fits into the standard eyetube of any monocular microscope. It has a pointer system that can be introduced into the field of view and mov ed to point out specific parts of the slide being studied. On the end of the side tube is a second eyepiece which has independent focusing which ensures the image is in focus for both observers. Date from approximately 1950 but still works perfectly.

Price £33.33 + vat

Zeiss Winkel Photosystem

Carl Ziess was briefly marketed as Ziess Winkel during the mid 1950’s which dates this accessory quite accurately. Still in excellent working condition the unit will fit over the trinocular eyetube or monocular eyetube of the microscope and the parallax focusing system, which has a focusing lines and field of view lines, enables accurate focus for the film plane. Inbuilt timer shutter release with cable. The film plate back has been well used but still fits securely in place. A collector’s piece.


Carl Zeiss Drawing Attachments

Drawing attachments are much sought after these days by illustrators but sadly none of the principal manufacturers make them in this digital day and age. This Zeiss unit is in good condition with the element that views the drawing paper having independent focusing and the option to rotate to accommodate drawing paper at an angle.


Zeiss Jena Centring Slide

We have included this Zeiss Jena item here because of its rarity value. Dating from about 1920 this is a numbered cross hair slide used for centring the rotating circular stages of polarising microscopes. Its presentation box is in truly excellent condition. A collectors item.

Carl Zeiss Trinocular

One of the classic Zeiss laboratory microscopes. Finished in grey enamel and in good condition apart from the inevitable scuffs on the stage caused by slide movements during the years. 6 volt 20 watt quartz halogen Kohler illumination. Trinocular photography tube with push/pull lever. Large mechanical stage with drop down coaxial controls. Focusing substage condenser with flip top lens, iris diaphragm and lateral adjusters. Coaxial coarse and fine focus controls. x8 wide field eyepieces. x10 neofluar  (n.a. 0.30), x16 neofluar (n.a. 0.40), phase contrast x40 neofluar (n.a. 0.75) and plan x100 neofluar oil immersion (n.a. 1.30). An excellent optical specification all original


Carl Zeiss Binocular

A classic Zeiss binocular microscope that is now a vintage collectors piece and all original. It is an attractive instrument finished in black enamel which polishes extremely well and the body work is excellent 6 volt  20 watt Kohler illumination system. Large mechanical stage with side arm coaxial controls. Substage focusing condenser  with iris diaphragm. The chrome controls are in excellent condition. The objectives are a Vickers x4, Zeiss Jena x10 and x40 and a Carl Zeiss x100 oil immersion with Carl Zeiss x8 eyepieces. This is a very nice microscope complete with a customised wooden case.


Zeiss Geology Stereomicroscope

There is quite a bit missing from this microscope, but the image is just too good to discard it. The bad news first - both the incident and transmitted lighting systems are no longer present and there are some marks to the paint finish. On the good side, the image is what you would expect from Zeiss with a zoom control that allows a magnification of x10 to x40. This is a bargain by any measure.
