Question about Tasco 750 Monocular Microscope

Microscopy; Relatively large spots on unknown surface obstructing view

Hey there,

I have a infinity light microscope and when I raise the condenser (or adjust the focus) to a certain height many spots with a bluish/red tinge appear in the field of view. I have turned the eyepieces, entire condenser (with attached filter), objectives and the spots remain stationary. I can't be sure whether it is dust or not, and I'm concerned they may be scratches, although the microscope is brand new. What do scratches/lens imperfections look like under the microscope? Also is there any other way of locating the problem?

Hey there to you too!

I suggest you don't have a problem at all. You are focusing on a ground glass filter somewhere in the light train. This serves the purpose of diffusing the light to give even illumination across the field of view.
When setting up, firstly use low power and a simple, easy specimen. Focus on this then rack up the condenser untill you see your annoying speckles. Rack up the condenser a little more untill the speckles just go out of focus. This is the position where your condenser should be for normal use.
Setting up the light source is the most important pre requasit for a good image, and there is a lot more to it than what I have already mentioned.
If I can be of any further help......Don't hesitate

Cheers and good hunting...Dave

I have the 75X-900X specialty microscope and it came with methyl orange, gum, and methylene blue. I am not sure what to use these three items on. The instructions say nothing about them.

the methyl orange and methylene blue are stains for use on thin
plant sections to show cell structures.
the gum is to attach coverslips to slides.
Try Googling microscopy there is one particularly good site

I have a microscope from National (DC3-163). How can I hook this microscope up to my MAcBook Pro. I only have Motic software that's compatible with Windows. Kris

I did a bit of research, and it looks like the only way that you can use the "Mac OSX compatible" microscope, is using it the same way one would plug in a webcam via USB. Essentially, you can plug in the Microscope, open up the Image Capture Utility, PhotoBooth, or Quicktime/iMovie (I'd recommend one of these two), make sure you have the Capture Device set to the microscope and you'll be able to "project" the image that you are seeing through the microscope onto the computer.
The Motic software does not have a counterpart for the Apple OS, and can only be used if you have a Windows BootCamp Partition, or if you have a Parallels installation of Windows that can use the Motic Software. There are other pieces of software out there that can utilize microscopes, but may not have all the same features as the Motic Bundled software. One that I found that may be of some use is called miXscope. It can be found here: , and it is relatively inexpensive in terms of licensing.
This may also be of some help for selecting compatible microscopes in the future:
Hope that helps!

You will need a Trinocular head and a digital microscopy camera. Contact Leica at their website. A Google search will get you well on your way.

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.
