Tami is a pocket size microscope adapted for the use
of botanists, entomologists, mineralogists,
biologists, chemists, student nurses, geologists,
industrial research laboratories, high school and
college students, etc. Its educational value to young
people as well as for adults cannot be overestimated.
It stimulates interest and study as it discloses
Nature's wonders hidden from the naked eye.
Although small and unpretentious in appearance, Tami
is a highly efficient microscope designed and
perfected by the world famous Hensoldt works,
pioneers in the manufacture of opto-scientific
instruments since 1857. Compared with an expensive,
complicated, delicate and bulky microscope of the
same enlarging power Tami has many advantages. Those
whose profession requires minute microscopic
observations while away from their laboratories will
greatly appreciate Tami for it slips readily into any
coat pocket. When not in use and covered with a neat,
seamless metal protective hood the complete
instrument weighs but 15 ounces, measures 13/l inches
in diameter and 4 inches in height.
The salient feature of this diminutive yet efficient
microscope is its unique construction which affords
the magnification of opaque or transparent objects
within the wide range of 25x to 225x. This is
performed without changing lenses and by simply
extending or collapsing its telescoping tubes. Tami
is extremely simple in operation and its construction
is so rigid that it will stand considerable abuse. It
can be therefore successfully used by any one even
those not familiar with complicated microscopes.
The size of the observation field as seen thru the
Tami varies with the degree of magnification.
Engaging its low power of magnification a large field
of view is obtained while with an increase of
magnification minute examinations of extremely small
areas can be secured. The engraved circle on the
plate glass stage enables one to quickly place
objects into the field of observation.
A glimpse at the accompanying illustrations tells of
the vast utility and efficiency of this really
wonderful universal microscope. Price complete,
The refecting mirror renders invalueble assistance
for thc examination of transparent objects,
microscopical preparations, etc.
