Product Description

Manufacturer: Carl Zeiss

Model: 47 27 10

Condition: For Parts or Not Working. Comes in non-original packaging.  This scope is in Good cosmetic condition for its age. There are the usual minor scuffs/scratches as well as worn/faded paint and adhesive label residues. The problem lies in the optics. The prism splitter for the trinocular head has some funk inside. The viewing tube  has some delamination that shows all around the outside of the glass. The objectives have funky green dots all over the metal right next to the bottom lenses. The eyepieces are ugly, the glass on one and the paint on the other. There is no lamp in the lower lamphouse. It takes an old-old bayonet-mounted bulb that we do not have. The photos show the exact item(s) the buyer will receive.

Notes: This scope is in Partial working condition.  The stage XY controls work, but the Z focus movement will fall if you push on top of the stage. The top illuminator works, but there is no bulb for the lower illuminator.  The view through the optics is bright, but *very low contrast* due to the delamination in the lenses. The point of focus is several millimeters ABOVE the top of the stage plate. No manuals, cords/cables, or additional items are included if not listed or shown.
