|Place Created:|| Jena Germany Europe
|Brief Description:||A clamping collar attaches to the eyepiece of a monocular microscope set vertical, and the upper part of the collar receives a flange on the horizontal tube and holds it by a screw in any desired direction. By prisms, the image from the microscope is passed along the horizontal tube and thence to hte eye, which simultaneously sees the drawing paper. A small domed head with a prism can be attached at the eye point to allow an observer to view at a angle rather than having to place the eye on a vertical access.|
