Title: Barrow lens and Dave's video
Post by: DavidDLC on February 08, 2013, 05:50:52 am
Thank you Dave, I saw your video regarding Barrow lens to increase the working area on the microscope and I had the task to install one on mine.

Well, today after coming back from my trip to China I installed a 0.75X barrow lens on my microscope and I'm happy with the results !

Also I'm happy with the savings, the price of the barrow lens here in the USA is $100.00 USD, the price in China was $50.00 USD, half of the price.

David.

Could have saved yourself the trip here (http://www.amscope.com/Barlow.html) ;D

Dang it.

I was checking their website for long time, so the sales are recent.

Well, my company paid for the trip, so no cost added to the piece.

( And I don't see a 0.75x barrow lens on that list )

Thanks for the link.
