Naming of the parts

Hi Everyone,

For those of us who are not so familiar with the parts of a microscope and what they do, or if you don’t know your dark fields from your phase contrasts, I commend to you the Amscope T490 manual which can be downloaded from for free. It’s worth a look.



Thanks, that’s helpful. I’m also a big fan of Nikon’s Microscopyu site for tutorials on key microscopy concepts.
