Nikon Model H Field Microscope
« on: February 04, 2021, 13:04:48 »
I would like to show you the Nikon model H field microscope.
The Nikon model H is a small and cute microscope, but it is a research-grade high-performance microscope.

I fondly remember using that model in the field in the late '60s It was an amazing design.

Sometime later, one of my co-workers did not return the H after field work. Thus it went under the radar at the institute and got lost. I always wondered about where it ended up, but never got a clear answer.

A fascinating instrument. If I ever seen one for sale at a low price (unlikely), I'll buy it.
