Some info on this microscope:
The National Optical & Scientific Instruments Model 131 Compound
Microscope is designed for high school use. Featuring a design focused
on safety and effective use you'll find the Model 131 more than adequate
for daily use by teenagers. The microscope's optics include DIN 4x 10x
and 40xR achromatic parfocalled parcentered color coded objectives. A
widefield 10x eyepiece with a revolving pointer sits at a 45° incline
and can be rotated 360° for sharing by multiple students. When it comes
to focusing the Model 131 is both precise and controlled. The slip
clutch prevents damages to the unit from over focusing while the safety
rack stop prevents damage to slides and objective lenses. The tension
adjustment eliminates stage drift while the low position and fine focus
controls allow students to get an accurate view of specimens.
