Wild M5A Stereomicroscope
Wild stereomicroscopes are known internationally for their Swiss made quality and precision in both mechanics and optical quality. The M5 was made from 1959 until 1989 when Wild merged with Leitz and the brand name Leica emerged. This example is the M5A and dates from the much later part of that period as can be seen from the livery finish. Like almost all of the Wild stereomicroscopes it is not a zoom but features four discrete magnifications of x6, x12, x25 and x50 with each magnification being double the power of the previous. This means that when the knurled magnification changer is rotated then separate pairs of objective lenses are rotated into the optical path and no matter how good a zoom mechanism is the Wild M5A structure does produce some excellent quality images. The left and right optical paths had a greater separation than other scopes which Wild claimed would produce an enhanced stereo effect. Whether or not this is true takes nothing from the fact that Wild stereomicroscopes set the standard for others to follow. The stand is a simple pole stand without illumination. Not many of these in good working order are about these days.

Brunel BSR Stereomicroscope
Originally supplied by ourselves this stereomicroscope is in pristine condition and is one of our best quality instruments that we have supplied over the years. This unit is no more than 2 years old for sad reasons that link to its previous owner. It is a binocular version with a continuous zoom magnification range of x6 to x50. What is notable about this unit is that it is equipped with a plan x1 objective that provides an excellent image. The BSR is a main objective stereo so that the full effect of this is evident in the final image. The stand is a dual LED light system with both incident and transmitted lighting both with rheostat brightness control that can be used together or independently. Condition as new.
