What do you think about these stereomicroscopes to observe dipters (very small to large ones)? Wink
The SZX10 seems to enable acopling a Canon DLSR camera...

Hi Jorge:
Both Olympus and Nikon high quality stereo scopes are superb.
Apochromatics objectives are better than achromatics.
Be sure to get a scope that lets you get LOW magnification, a maximum LOW of 6x but 4x may be better. For the high end I have never had the need to go beyond 50x, but you may want to go higher.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
