Stand Weighing in at over 60lbs, the V6 is extremely stable. It has almost 24" of clearance to the base and can view objects over 18" tall. Dual arm construction adds to its strength while a counterweight adds balance. A locking collar acts as a safety mechanism under the boom arm. As with most Omano boom stands, a hanging bar is included that enables angled viewing positions. The hanging bar bracket is spring-loaded so that the lever can be moved out of the way without having to release the pre-set position of the microscope head.
