This National Optical full-size model 411 stereo microscope. It provides sharp, bright 3-dimensional images at both 20x and 40x magnification on a mechanically rugged full-size frame.

Magnification is changed by rotating the objective turret 90°. The stereoscopic head has paired widefield 10x inclined eyepieces that can rotate 360° for viewing ease and include a left diopter and interpupillary adjustment. Other features include smooth, solid rack and pinion focusing, slip clutch, tension adjustment, a large, stable base, and extra-rugged construction.

The fixed-arm design prevents accidental damage to the optical components. The illumination system has top and bottom cool tungsten lights. Light switches mounted on the base allow you to choose between using top or bottom lighting only or both at the same time.
