In this section, a few of my favorite microscopes are shown. I also use these microscopes regularly for micro photography. They are all microscopes from the past and made at a time when there was no cut back on quality. The use of plastic was kept to a minimum in these microscopes, they were build to last. That in contrast to many of the current microscopes which are mechanically clearly inferior. Furthermore, I find those old microscopes more aesthetically pleasing than modern microscopes. But that’s of course a matter of taste….
