Microscope (small)

This is a simple microscope which achieves relatively small magnifications (3-5 times) and allows us to observe details of the object in high precision. It consists of a tube in which there are two converging lenses, the objective and the eyepiece ones. The subject to enlarge is placed into two tablets, and behind the tablets there is a reflector. In addition there is a screw by which we can achieve an appropriate focal length. The objective lens is located about 20cm from the eyepiece lens, from which we can look at the object. We pose the object AB between the two plates and in front of the objective lens (having short focal length) in a way that the lens itself form a real and magnified image A'B’. The A’B’ is formed between the optical center of the eyepiece and its main past. We observe the actual image A'B’ using the eyepiece lens which act as "magnifier" and give the final virtual image A’’B’’ inverted, and much bigger than the object AB and at equal distance to the distance of sharp vision. The microscope is accompanied with a wooden box.
