Description of the Eclipse e600 instrument from the Museum of Microscopy
Available since the mid-1990s, the mid-tier microscope incorporates completely new specifications adopted for the CFI60 series objectives, including a 60-millimeter parfocal distance, a 25-millimeter thread size, and a standard 22-millimeter field of view. An ergonomic design allows for longer periods of comfortable observation.
The E600 is equipped with a detachable substage, a 12-volt 100-watt tungsten-halide lamp, filter magazine, and a choice of sextuple nosepiece or sextuple DIC nosepiece. The microscope features a longer focal length tube lens, a characteristic feature of the new CFI60 infinity optical system, and a new multiple point rigid design for attaching accessories. Advanced universal objectives allow for multiple observation techniques -- such as brightfield, darkfield, Nomarski DIC, epi-fluorescence or phase contrast -- eliminating the need to change objectives while maintaining the same optical quality as dedicated lenses.
This 5 megapixel camera stores images on a CompactFlash card and the images can also be viewed on an external monitor.
