I have a nikon optiphot and I'm trying to install the 1.25x intermediate tube with the nosepiece I have it extends the objectives too far towards the stage. I notice there is a DIC setting on the stage, does this mean I can lower the stage height to adjust for this extension? Thanks,

Yes, that set screw near "T" on your photo#3 can be unscrewed to loosen the stage, then stage can be lowered.

Your backward-facing nosepiece extends further downward towards stage (and it has a lens inside to compensate tube length), compared to a forward-facing nosepiece.

I have changed mine all to forward-facing nosepieces to gain extra space under stage.
