Thread subject: :: Magnification

Posted by JariF on 23-01-2011 10:44


I use Konus Crystal-45 microscope for diptera and it works fine with specimens and larger genitalia. With 10x ocular I can get 45x magnification and now it seems to be too weak for genitalia of smaller flies. I'm thinking of buying new 20x oculars but will they be strong enough to study genitalis of Pipunculidae or Agromyzidae ? I do have a regular microscope with magnification from 100x upwards but as it's not "stereo" it's not practice to handle. Any tips will be wellcome.
