Thank you for your post on the forum.

Unfortunately we are unfamiliar with AO's specifications and the specifications for the Olympus auxillary objective. We recommend contacting Olympus for an appropriate adatper.

Finding a thread adapter for my AO microscope

Post by sspeedstreet on Wed Dec 12, 2012 4:03 pm

I use an American Optical microscope in my business, a model 560. There are female threads at the bottom of the microscope head for accessories (I have an American Optical 2X lens that screws in). I also have an Olympus 0.3X WD250-350 I wish to use. The thread diameter is the same, but the pitch is different. It will cross-thread in enough to hold it, but it needs a proper adapter. Can someone here tell me what I need or point me to a knowledgeable supplier that can help me? Thanks for your help.

Neil
