Olympus BH2
Trinocular Microscope

USD $2300

MODEL: Olympus BH2
Shipping Cost: To be determined



Photo shows an Aplanat Achromat 1.4 numerical aperature light condenser. This is a special condenser for special use and is rarely used. It is not needed here. This will be replaced with a normal condenser, 1.25 N.A, Olympus part number U-AC. This U-AC is actually a newer condenser that is made for the new BX series but fits fine and works perfectly on the BH-2 line.
