The Omano OM9959 offers arguably the best value in the stereo microscope range in spite of its price. Equivalent to its Olympus cousin, it is in our opinion the best stereo zoom microscope out of China. With a zoom range of 6.5x-45x, the optics are first class. Super wide field SWF 10x eyepieces make for a significantly improved viewing experience and higher quality coated achromatic objectives lenses compare favorably to its Olympus cousin at a fraction of the price. It is also available in trinocular format for those who wish to engage in photography.
The OM9959 starts with super wide field SWF10x/22 eyepieces that make a genuine difference to your viewing experience, while reducing eye fatigue with prolonged viewing. Dual diopters enable individual eye focusing with interpupillary adjustment range of 55-75mm. The objective are parfocal, coated achromatic lenses with a zoom ratio of 1:6.9 and a zoom range of 6.5x-45x. Unquestionably the best optics in the Omano range. The head is inclined at a comfortable 45 degrees while it can rotate through 360 degrees for flexible viewing positions. NOTE: When the photo-prism lever is engaged in the OM99-Trincular, 100% of the light from the left optical path is directed to the camera port. The image can still be viewed through the right eyepiece.
Focus & Illumination
Dual side-mounted focus controls enable left or right-handed operation. The microscope includes professional 110V 6V 15W halogen illumination for both top (incident) and bottom (transmitted) lights. There are three settings: top, bottom or top and bottom with adjustable intensity on all settings.
The microscope includes a pole stand with integrated illumination. As explained above, the pole stand enables the entire head to be swiveled in order to be examine large specimens that cannot fit on the microscope stage. The pole stand can also be used in conjunction with a 0.75x or 2.0x barlow lens.
