Despite the complexity of the design, the amateur microscope can be assembled at home.

You will need

  • Two lenses 10 diopters each, glue, paper, plywood.



Take a hard sheet of paper and painted aside black. Then glue the tube out of it (the painted color inside) a length of 10 centimeters, and its diameter is done under the lens diameter. Sawn in half pipe. One part is the eyepiece, the other - the lens.


Then do another 20 tube lengthcentimeters, it is the microscope tube. Inside it, too, must be painted black. The diameter of the tube should be such that the two first tube included therein with an interference fit.
