Palomar Brightfield Metallurgical Microscope

The Palomar microscope is a brightfield metallurgical microscope with simple polarization. Available with reflected light only or with reflected and transmitted light. This high magnification compound materials microscope is ideal for viewing samples that will not allow light to pass through them. Long working distance objectives allow for viewing larger samples. The trinocular microscope provides a camera port for addition of a microscopy camera.
