That scope looks above average quality, what brand is it?
And can you direct measure with it, I assume after calibration?

Nice neat installation Dave. Any chance of seeing a view through the scope?

Nice!

I'm really curious as to just how you will be using this microscope?  :thinking:

Also, I like the looks of those two task lights. Do you happen to have a source for those?
