Stereo microscope

stereo microscope
The stereo microscope or "dissecting microscope" is an optical microscope used for detailed three dimentional vision. Catching the light with two objectives, stereo microscope allows better studies of thick specimen. Capable of dark field observations stereo microscope functions by means of two separate light beams making the visual stereo effect. Stereo microscopes are not very powerful though, their useful magnification is not greater than 100 and 10 times in the average use. Some stereo microscopes use auxiliary objectives for more magnification.


Unfortunately we are not able to show the 3 dimentional effect on this site. Stereo microscope can use two separate video cameras for stereo recording and special video displaying aquipment would be needed for the proper stereo view. This video shows Pinus male strobile cell structure with its colour diversity.
