Olympus Vanox AHBT3 for Sale

Hi all, I want to contact you because I want to sell my Olympus Vanox AHBT3 that I bought from a clinic some years ago. It would devastate me to dismantle this beauty to gain profit from it online, It would give me pleasure to know that someone gives it a new life. It's in perfect working condition ...

Guys, did anyone experimented with acrylic (and aceton to glue) ?
Seems like a cheap way to build mini tanks.

I recommend to look for the "Michel-Levy chart of pol. colors". Stack an exact parallel staircase of a sticking tape to compare the color sequence with Levy. That is exactly what i wanted to describe when finding out that adding more layers after a point has no more use... Thank you for pointing in...

I bought 2 different sets, a linear 0/90 of 0.4mm and a lineai 45/135 of 0.8mm. The angle is not that important to me, but maybe the thickness does make a dif...

I'll keep experimenting.

Just tested this with adding layers of 3M clear scotch tape on a 700x700 slide and holding it between my lineair filter and condensor. Changing the specimen, the results vary off course. I don't receive the result you get (that nice black background with rainbow colors in the crystals), but more lik...

Thank you for enlightening us with the long and time-consuming process of decapsulating.
And it seems a very dangerous procedure.
I've seen some cowboys on youtube, doing unhealthy things.
