We just got a new stereo microscope for art examination!  We upgraded to a trinocular microscope with zoom lens 1x-4x and Barlow lens to achieve 140x magnification! It has built-in direct and transmitted light and its high magnification allows even for documentation of cross-section. We are going to couple it with the technical photography (TP) and multispectral imaging (MSI) equipment and take advantage of its high magnification and of the versatility of the stereo microscope. Our Nikon D800 full spectrum modified digital camera is already sitting on the trinocular tube and more will come soon. Stay tuned 🙂
