Microscope Upgrades!

I got a stereo microscope to make my time spent making PCBs more comfortable.

This really helps with the small stuff and ensures a better quality product !

  1. Hey, what sort of scope did you end up getting? AMscope or something from Luckyzoom on aliexpress? Did you get a 0.5x or 0.7x barlow lense?
    I’m really keen on buying a trinocular simulfocal double-arm boom ‘scope at some point.

    1. Hi J

      Bought the Eakins 2020 trinocular simulfocal off AliExpress

      Was shipped by courier and took about a month due to COVID.

      The unit is good enough. For soldering I’ve been using the .5x Barlow but have ordered the .3x as I want a wider FOV. I also then bought the autofocus Imx290 camera. The image quality is not as good as the view through the glass and it doesn’t match the fov of the scope. Still, connected to a monitor it’s great for inspections and capturing photos.
