Peak 2034-CIL

 The 2034 series microscopes are available as a special model with coaxial illumination (Köhler illumination). This additional illumination is reflected into the light beam from the side by a system of prisms. This prevents irritating reflections particularly with highly glossy materials. This coaxial illumination is absolutely essential to check surface structures on smooth materials or for high contrast reproduction of colour pigments. The battery box included with the microscope contains two 1.5 Volt AA batteries and has a potentiometer to adjust the light intensity.

The optical system is identical with the 2034 series stand microscopes but the base is aluminium and is not available as an acrylic base.
