The microscope is equipped with a rotating monocular head with a 45° incline making long observations or group experiments more comfortable. When several people need to view the same specimen the head can be turned accordingly without needing to move the whole unit.

Magnification includes settings from 40x to 1000x. The 10x wide-field eyepiece comes with a pointer. The achromatic objectives 4x 10x 40x and 100x are conveniently loaded in the revolving nosepiece enabling fast adjustment of magnification power. Objectives 40x and 100x are spring-loaded. In addition both coarse and fine focusing are included.

The microscope stage is equipped with a mechanical stage for convenience. The Abbe condenser with iris diaphragm and a filter holder are located under the stage. The illumination system consists of two parts: upper and lower illumination with variable intensity. Illumination can be powered by batteries (not included) or plug-in (AC adapter in kit).

The book “The Invisible World” is a wonderful graphic scholastic that tells about microscopes and the microbial world. It includes scientific theories and practicable advice on how to conduct experiments in a home setting. It perfectly fits the Discovery Atto Polar microscope.
