I have a Bausch and Lomb/Leica StereoZoom 4 microscope that I would like to use for microsoldering and occastional photos. Unfortunately, it only has 10X eye pieces and no auxillary lenses or illumination.
The scope uses "standard" 38mm auxillary lenses. Finding a .5X lens isn't hard, but at over $100 a piece, I prefer not to remortgage my home. There are tons of inexpensive 42mm ones available, however, as they are more common.
Is it possible to buy an adapter that will allow me to use .5X lenses?
