Hi there people,
I´m considering this scope

http://www.ebay.com/itm/50X-500X-Trinocular-Metallurgical-Microscope-with-Polarizing-Features/401070365767?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

Is this any good for micro mineral specimen studying and photographing?

I have an Amscope T230A from the same dealer and very happy with that one...

Not wishing to "teach you to suck eggs", do you know the fine focus travel ?
You want as much as possible; some makes are only about 2mm where others are near 30mm.

What facilities do you have on your T230A?

Hi,
My T230A is a biological microscope. There I have BF/DF and polarise possibilities. But I don´t have the surface possibilities.
I will send them an mail and ask them about the fine travel....

Thanks for taking your time ChrisR

I looked at the eBay listing and it does seem to be a good reflected light scope for the reduced price of the listing. I've never used Amscope equipment before, but for metallurgic use at the listed magnifications, I believe it should perform well. Smile
