8. Mounting the bulb
Never touch the surface of bulb with your hand directly. Please use gloves or cloth material when you
mount the bulb to avoid leaving fingerprints. Fingerprints or stains should be wiped off with a tissue
moistened with a small amount of alcohol. The fingerprints will etch on the bulb
s surface and make
brightness lower and life cycle shorter.
Please make sure the bulb’s touching points are Ok as it will not light or short circuit if the bulb’s touching
points are damaged. Insert the bulb’s legs into the bulb holder firmly. The bulb will go out if its legs have
not been inserted into the holder firmly. Such Operation may cause short circuit or smoking. At last, please
make sure if the collector has been mounted properly.
9. Temperature for illumination
There will be high temperature when the bulb is lightened, never move the collector when the bulb is
lightened. Do not touch the bulb within 30 minutes after it has been turned off. Make sure the bulb has been
cooling for enough time (at least 30 minutes) to avoid scald. Do not put fiber, papers and incendive things (eg.
Gasoline, aether, methanol and ethanol) close to the bulb.
10. Make sure to turn off the power supply before assembling microscope,
replacing bulb or fuse.
11. Observing with oil immersion
Using small amount of oil immersion is enough. The redundant oil will adhere to stage or
condenser and these will reduce microscope’s performance.

2.3 Nomenclature
Total magnification
Total magnification = Eyepiece’s magnification * objective’s magnification
Numerical aperture (N.A.)
N.A. value will affect resolution and image’s brightness, it is the leading parameter for
objectives. N.A.= n*sin
n stands for refractive index of the medium between objective and specimen or condenser (air or oil
immersion)
a stands for half angle of max. aperture angle in the axis
The image will be sharper and brighter when the N.A. value is bigger
Resolution
Resolution can be measured by the distance value from one point to another one which could
be distinguished on the object surface
10
STEINDORFF
®
Resolution=  2N.A.
stands for wavelength (= 0.55 m)
Working distance
The distance between the object surface to the first surface of optical system when you get
the sharpest image. The W.D. will become more short when the magnification for the
objective is bigger.
Eyepiece view field
The max diameter measured when the diaphragm is open. 10X/20 means the magnification is
10X and the max diameter of view field is 20mm
Effective view field
Liner view field which is observed on the object surface
Effective view field = eyepiece view field / objective’s magnification
Depth of field
Depth of field stands for depth of the space in which there is sharp image on the object surface.
Depth of field will be longer when the diaphragm reduces. Depth of field will be shorter when
the N.A. becomes bigger.

edge of view field.
e. Open the view field diaphragm and make its image a little bigger than the view field in practice.
5.9.
Adjusting aperture diaphragm
Adjust the aperture diaphragm adjusting shaft for condenser till the position which stands for the magnification
of objective adjusting the aperture diaphragm
a. Adjust the aperture diaphragm by the adjusting shaft. The brightness and resolution will be decrease
while the contrast and depth of view will increase if the diameter of aperture diaphragm reduces.
b. Adjust the value of aperture diaphragm to 70%-80% of the value of objectives N.A..
c. The aperture diaphragm could control the N.A. of condenser. Do not adjusting the brightness by it
while use the brightness adjusting knob to make the adjustment.
d. N.A. is marked in each objective e.g. 40X/0.65 stands for that magnification is 40X and N.A. is 0.65.
e. Remove the eyepiece and observe through the eye tubes by eyes directly N.A. of condenser could tell
users the position of aperture diaphragm adjusting shaft in corresponding magnification. (That is to say,
the value of aperture diaphragm should be 70% to 80% of the N.A. of objective when the aperture
diaphragm adjusting shaft reaches some position) If the objective has been changed, please move the shaft to
the position with the same value which is in the objective in the optic path and this will make ideal contrast.

22
STEINDORFF
®
★ Do not expose the oil immersion in the sun or ultraviolet radiation directly.
As the air bubble in the oil immersion will make bad affect to the quality of image, please make sure
that there is no air bubble in the oil immersion before use. Please check the air bubble as following,
remove the eyepieces and open the view field diaphragm and aperture diaphragm entirely then observe
the exit pupil which is light and in nummular shape.
★Remove the air bubble as following:
Turn the nosepiece slowly and turn the oil immersion objective once or twice.
Turn the lifting knob for condenser slowly and make the condenser a little bit of up and down.
Increase the amount of oil immersion or change the old oil immersion with new one.
c. Operation for oil immersion
Use the oil immersion as little as possible. The oil immersion will be conglutinated to the stage and
condenser and this will have bad effect the performance if there is too much oil immersion. Please
clean the redundant oil on the objective and condenser after finishing the observation otherwise the
image will be affected. Use the aether to clean the oil then use the pure alcohol (ethanol or carbinol) to
make entirely cleaning. Please repeat the clean three or four times.
★Notice:
Please follow the instruction from manufacture when the aether or pure alcohol is used. Keep them
away from the fire or electronic spark.
d. Attention
★Keep the bottle for oil immersion sealed as much as possible and check it periodically.
★Never press the bottle overly as it may caused oil gushed out of the bottle.
★Clean the out surface of the bottle from remanent oil.

7. Maintenance
7.1. Cleaning Lenses
Dust is best removed with a soft brush or gauze.
More persistent dirt, such as fingerprints, grease and oil, may be removed with soft cotton, lens tissue,
or gauze lightly moistened with absolute alcohol (ethyl or methyl alcohol).
To clean immersion oil off the oil-immersion type objective, use lens tissue, soft cotton or gauze lighty
moistened with petroleum benzine only.
Do not use petroleum benzine to clean the entrance lens at the bottom of the eyepiece tube or prism
surfaces inside the eyepiece tube.
Absolute alcohol and petroleum benzine are quite inflammable. Take great care when handling them
and when setting the power switch on and off. Be very careful with fire.
7.2. Cleaning painted or plastic surfaces
Avoid use of and organic solvents (such as alcohol, ether, thinner,ect.) to clean the painted or plastic
surfaces of the instrument. We recommend the use of silicon cloth.
More persistent dirt may be cleaned with mild detergent solution.
Printed plastic surfaces should be cleaned only by soft cloth moistened with water.
27
STEINDORFF
®
7.3. When not in use
When the microscope is not in use, cover it up with dust cover, and store in a dry place not subject to
mold.
We especially recommend that the objectives and eyepieces be kept in a container (such as a
plastic bottle).
7.4. Periodical inspection
To maintain the performance of the microscope, periodical inspection is recommended.
