I do not think so . Most image programs manipulate the image once the vendor software has taken the image Why can you not instal the software

Take apart olympus sz3060 microscope head


Hi,

I will try to help, but ?

Why do you need to do this would be the first question ?

A lot of maintenance can be carried out without dismantling the unit.
Their are also lots of special techniques for free jammed parts without a full strip down ?

email yvonne@ukmicroscopy.co.uk and let her know what the issue is and the engineers will discuss it with you for FREE before your start ( IF you want to of course)

1st Rule : As a general rule, everything is fixed with either grub screws or screws, most are small and some are hidden under caps or labels

2nd Rule : DO NOT use cheap or inappropriate tools : you will damaged the instrument and then someone like us has to drill them all out at substantial cost.

3rd Rule : LInt free high quality cloths, propanol only for glass and lenses.

4th Rule : TAKE PICTURES of everything as you dismantle it so you have a visual record of the project

Lower housing around the bottom lense will normally screw off, however it will be secured with grub screws or screws so you will need small alan keys or screwdriver to remove. They screws do not have to be taken out completely.

The eyepiece tubes will also screw out , but again check for screws and grub screws acting as locking nuts.

The main focus knobs, normally have a plastic cover at the end that needs to be taken off and you will find compression fittings with either a grub screw , knut or screw . these need to be removed and pulled off, gently but be firm.

The main body should be screwed : Remove again with a high quality x driver (Phillips) (It will not be a PZ head for the screw)

Question is now what ??

Hope it helps

What is the other types of microscope ? how do they differ from a compound microscope ?


Compound Microscope
  • Compound microscopes can be found in most biology and science classrooms. They are electrically operated and use light to enhance the image of a cell. They will have multiple lenses for viewing.
Dissecting Microscope
  • Dissecting microscopes are also known as stereo microscopes. They have low magnification and are also light powered. These microscopes can view objects larger than what a compound microscope is able to handle, in three dimensions.
SEM
  • A Scanning Electron Microscope uses electrons instead of light to create an image. These microscopes produce three-dimensional images with high resolution and magnification. They also have a larger depth of focus.
TEM
  • Transmission Electron Microscopes use electrons instead of light to create an image. The material prepared must be very thin. The beams of electrons that pass through it give the viewer high magnification and resolution. These give two-dimensional images.

I have a Swift SM80 microscope and we are seeing double images. I can't seem to adjust


Sometimes the eyepiece tubes get out of alignment. To check for this, look through the microscope. As you are looking through the scope hold the eyepiece tubes and see slightly "flexing" these tubes with your hands has an affect on the image. If your head is the problem you will be able to flex the tubes until the image is clear. You won't need alot of force. Do not use enough force to bend or break the weak metal. If this works your eyetubes and or head are misaligned. Unfortunately, once a head has been misaligned like this it is not practically repairable.

Why should the coarse focusing knob not be used when focusing with the higher-powered objective lenses


There are two reasons. One reason is that when on high power you are working so close to the glass slide that it is easy to misjudge how much you are moving the specimen toward the lens that you can break a slide before you realize it. The coarse focus moves the stage with the specimen on it very fast and you only have a very very short distance within the focus plane before you run the objective lens into the slide.
Secondly, it is just harder to control the minute adjustments needed at the higher powers with the "coarse" focus knob. If you start at the low magnifications find what you want to concentrate on with the coarse focus knobs and then work your way up to the higher powers, you will have very little trouble moving to the fine focus controls at 40x and 100x while still having control of your image.

Stage slowly falls causing unfocus


Try holding the Right knob so it does not move, whilst firmly moving the Left knob towards you (clockwise), this is the adjusting method used on Zeiss Jena 1960's High End microscopes, e.g Eduaval & Ergaval.
Good luck,

Double vision


it looks like when you took this apart you did not alignt the lenses properly, there should be a locating groove or stub which these lenses should fit to... it looks like they are pressing against the stub but are not located properly, hence the distortion. try taking it apart again....when you put it back together again the fault may have gone.

Image rings when using Coolpix for microscopy


Under some circumstances when using the Coolpix 4500 attached to a microscope concentric rings are visible as in the below. The COOLPIX 4500 aspherical lens surface is ground to create the ideal curves to gather rays at the focal point with an extremely high accuracy. Such minute lines are not visible in the image taken with a camera alone, however if the camera is used with a microscope, the lines become visible as the depth of field is increased due to the combined F numbers of the camera lens and microscope lenses.
