How to transport the microscope
held in an upright position with one hand on its arm and the other supporting its base.
Microscope part: base
supports the microscope
Microscope part: substage light
located in the base, light source
Microscope part: stage
platform the slide rests on while being viewed
Microscope part: condensor
small substage lens that concentrates the light on the specimen
Microscope part: iris diaphragm lever
arm attached to the base of the condensor that regulates the amount of light passing through the condensor
Microscope part: coarse adjustment knob
used for large focusing
Microscope part: fine adjustment knob
used for precise focusing
Microscope part: arm
vertical portion of the microscope connecting base and head
Microscope part: ocular
eyepiece, magnification of 10x
Microscope part: nosepiece
rotating mechanism at the base of the head which carries the objective lens
Microscope part: objective lens
adjustable lens system that permits use of a scanning lens, low-power lens, hihg-power lens, or oil immersion lens
slide: epithelial
also called Barr's bodies
slide: the letter "e"
It was flipped upside down and reversed.
slide: grid
the boxes got bigger the greater the magnification. At high magnification, you could see dyed paper fibers.
slide: 3 colored threads
3 threads were laid across each other. As you magnified you could the order they were laid by the fine adjustment knob
