difference between monocular & binocular compound micros
Thanks for your interest in our microscope products!
The only difference between monocular compound microscope to binocular microscope is the fact that you can use both eyes with a binocular microscope when you are looking at the subject, and with a monocular microscope you can only look at the sample with one eye.
Binocular microscopes have two microscope objectives, and monocular microscopes have just one.
Here is a picture of a Meade monocular microscope
and here is a picture of a LOMO binocular microscope
There are also thinocular microscopes, and the third ocular tube in trinocular microscopes allow you to connect various microscopes accessories like adapters for 35mm, video and digital cameras for photomicrography, teacher pointer accessories, and more.
We hope it helps!
