Stereo microscope basics

There are two main types of light microscope, compound and stereo. Generally stereo microscopes are used for low magnification applications, (tyically upto around 100x). There are two optical paths transfering the image from the eypieces al the way to the to the final objective lens and even all the way to the sample, for some very low cost units. This gives a perception of 3D when veiwing the subject, this is because you are viewing the sample from two slightly different angles, unlike an upright which views with a single optical path vertically to the sample. The trick with most optical inspection tasks, is only to use just enough magnification as is required, allowing you to view the detail required. This will retain depth of focus and larger fields of view. Higher magnifiction is often used, to try and overcome poor illumination or resolution.
