Stereo microscope – The Steve Richardson way.

Although stereo microscopes are an essential piece of hardware in biology labs, sometimes we wish they had more features, like the possibility to record the magnified images with a camera, or have a better lighting system to enhance contrast on those small samples.

One person has taken those issues to heart and tackled them all in a very brilliant way. Below you’ll find links to Steve’s blog, where he describes, in a very detailed way, three projects to enhance the all familiar stereo microscope:

Camera eye piece adaptor.

AZIZ – a ring lighting system.

Articulated stereo microscope mount.

Some of them are not that easy to reproduce, but maybe be a good starting point for other DIY versions.
