My Microscopes: Zeiss Greenough Stereo

Early 20th Century



Zeiss with Greenough Optical Train

The Greenough system is essentially two microscopes mounted side by side to give a stereoscopic view in the manner of opera glasses. The field is quite restricted in size.

The body of the microscope can either be mounted on a stage and foot, or just with the separate foot shown above and configured as in the image below:


Mounting without stage




Objective pair

The objectives for this stand are mounted in pairs on a sliding mount. Unfortunately I only have two pairs, and they are both the same magnification!
