HOW TO – Make a simple DIY stereoscopic microscope

Uster2 19
Here’s how to make a steroscopic microscope using a camera zoom lens and binoculars, G. Carboni writes – “Another stereoscopic microscope? Actually, I was not thinking about writing another article on this topic, but a good idea convinced me to do it. In fact, I didn’t think it was possible to further simplify the project of the dissecting microscope already published in this gallery. I also thought my readers had enough examples for building microscopes, but a friend gave me a ground-breaking idea, and I just had to include it. This innovation to the original project makes the prism box useless. This box was quite difficult to build, and its elimination simplifies the project and make the fabrication of the microscope easier.” – Thanks Midnight! Link.
