Continental   microscope: c. 1840

screw fine adjustment mechanism

The country of origin of this instrument is unclear. It was purchased in Scotland. The microscope focuses by manually moving the tube up and down. The fine adjustment is by micrometer screw located just above the tripod base within the scroll supports. The microscope is supplied with three separate triple-button objectives, one with a small ieberkuhn attachment (shown); they are stored in the case in a compartment under the microscope.
