The microscope includes a sliding-type binocular head with the oculars inclined at an ergonomic 30°. The left eyetube has diopter settings for easy individual eye focusing and the interpupillary distance is adjustable between 53mm - 72mm. 10x Widefield High Eyepoint eyepieces (F.N. 20) with a 21mm reticle mount are standard.
