For those who are looking for an erect (normal) image we offer the 2056 Pocket Microscope. These normal or erect pocket microscopes have the same construction and performance of the inverted pocket microscopes, although they are slightly heavier in weight.
Some typical applications:
- Microscopy laboratory for specimen examination before sample preparation
- Printed circuit board inspection, especially for hair line cracks
- Printing industry for "dot" measurement
- Jewelers for examining gem stones
- Geology, for aid in mineral identification
- Forensic investigators especially for field applications
Each of these precision crafted microscopes provides high resolving power and a surprising amount of brightness in the final image. The PEAK pocket microscope is used whenever someone is confronted with the need to see something "better" than they could otherwise see with the unaided (or naked) eye. It comes with a pen clip to conveniently "clip" right onto a shirt pocket, just as you would a ball point pen!
Glass lens housed in both clear and black shock resistant plastic. We won't guarantee that if dropped, it won't break, but we ourselves have experienced our share of dropped scopes and almost always, the pocket microscope survives.
To focus the microscope, hold it so that the notch at the tip of the acrylic cylinder faces toward the user. While tilting back and forth on the tip, with your eye looking through the eye piece, you can fix the adjustable cylinder until all is in focus to give the sharpest image. The microscope comes in four different magnifications. Many of our customers purchase more than one, with different magnifications.
Inverted vs. Erect Images:
The Peak 2001 Series of pocket microscopes all have an inverted image. For those who are looking for an erect (normal) image we offer the 2056 Pocket Microscope. These have the same construction and performance of the inverted pocket microscopes, although they are slightly heavier in weight. 25X and 50X magnification available.
These Pocket microscopes do not have a scale.
