Summary

The most flexible microscope with a continuous zoom, and zoom goes all the way from 3.75X (good for repairs) to 36X (a serious professional inspection microscope).

The flexible lighting also makes this a good choice for gemstones, without going to the expense of a specialist 'gemmological microscope'. 

Details

Working distance about 4 inches.

This comes with two pairs of eyepieces:
- with the 5X eyepieces you get continuous zoom from 3.75X to 18X
- with the 10X eyepieces you get continuous zoom from 7.5X to 36X

At  3.5X to about 5X, you will be able to use your hands, e.g. for painting miniatures, micro-soldering, any fine repairs.

At about 5X to 8X you will be able to work with fine tools on the tiniest objects, e.g. watch movements.

From about 10X this is a general 'inspection' microscope, for gemstones, stamps, coins...everything you might use a jeweller's loupe for (but 100X the optical quality!).  

For jewellery, antiques renovation (even stamps and coins) you are unlikely to turn the magnification up beyond 20X, but you have the option.

There is a backlight under the stage (so you use the microscope in the traditional way, for looking at slides) and also a 45 degree light. A switch selects one or the other...or both...or none.  It's particularly good for gemstones because of the flexible lighting. 

Dimensions: 400 x 330 x 145mm (15.75 x 13 x 5.75 in)
