Olympus BH2 DIC/Nomarski

Post by myxomop »

Hi All,

I'm wondering if PlanApo objectives are required for DIC on the BH2, or if I can get prisms that will match my simpler SPlan 5x, 10x, 20x, and 40x (my 100x is SPlan Apo). If so, what are the model names of the prisms I'd want to buy?

Thanks in Advance,

SPlans are the proper objectives for DIC on the BH-2. That's what I use on mine. Try your SplanApo 100x before you buy a replacement. I also have an SPlanApo 20x that seems to work fine as well.
