New Compound Microscopes Focus on Clarity and Comfort

microscope terminology

Look into these compound microscopes ideal for both students and professionals.

A compound microscope consists of a group of lenses (called objectives) which focuses a real image of the object inside the microscope. A second group of lenses (called eyepieces) magnify this image and projects it on the retina of the eye. This compound optical system (objectives – eyepieces) together with other mechanical components are the basics of a modern microscope. The overall resolution and image quality of a microscope is determined by the quality of the optics and the light source.
