Easy-to-use robust microscope in very good condition

This professional compact biological microscope, a Biolam E24 and delivered by the German company Bresser under their own product name Erudit, was manufactured late 20th century by the firm Lomo, Leningrad, USSR with the Carl Zeiss/Jena factory-installations, which were confiscated after the second world war, hence this quality!
This rock-solid, indestructible, biological microscope has surprisingly many options:
- Sturdy stand with double-sided coarse and fine adjustment
- Tubus, 160 mm, rotatable at an angle of 45°, 360°
- Eyepieces: 7X and 15X with measuring glass;
- Four lenses: achromatic, 9X-0.20, 20X-0.40, 40X0.65 (spring loaded), 90X1.25 (spring loaded, oil) on quadruple turret that has a magnification range of 63X to 1350X;
- Cross-table that moves the preparation very carefully along the X and Y axes (both with Vernier scale) (Not original, does fit and is 100% functional);
- Light by means of double-sided mirror or a universal led light (batteries included), operated by centrable, height-adjustable Abbè-condenser 1.25 two lenses (one is collapsible), diaphragm, and blue filter;
- Small parts in a plastic box: slides, cover slips, pipette, oil bottle (empty), two object clamps and the screw conveyors
This microscope has very little wear, the optics are clear and clean and without scratches, mechanical functions run smoothly and without play The microscope is completely overhauled. All Russian wax has been removed and replaced with high-quality lubricants
The beech case is very beautiful, from German manufacturer, with lock and key. There is a German/English-language print-out of the manual for Biolam-microscopes, pages not in the right order but all pages are present.
The microscope weighs 3.2 kg, with case 6.9 kg and dimensions are H 31 X W 16 X L 21 cm.
The micro pictures made with this microscope were taken with the led light and a digital USB eyepiece (not included).
The pictures are part of this description
Will be packaged well and always sent with track and trace.
