Olympus made something described as a "phase-contrast slit attachment" for the Vanox-t ah-2 microscope. I've never seen one and would love to see what it looks like/ acquire one. Any leads or pictures would be greatly appreciated.
I found this in my box of goodies but have no idea what it is. I know it's Olympus made, probably for an ah-2 or bh-2, but no idea the purpose. Does anyone know what this is?

The scope came to me in the condition you see with the DIC condenser and nosep...
Well good to know that the "rainbow-test" isn't really definitive. The DIC condenser turret rotates and displays the number of the objective to be used. I was under the assumption that either the prisms above the objective were objective-specific or the prisms below the condenser were, but not both....
Here are a couple pictures of the nosepiece sans objectives. It looks somewhat like you describe, with three black-bordered filters inserted above the objectives. I looked down through the top of the nosepiece through the filter with a polarizer on the other side. Unfortunately, I did not see the ch...
