Projection Microscope or Micro-Projector, by Carl Zeiss, West Germany, Late 20th Century

Brief Description: Mounted on a heavy base and covered with a steel box or body, with a sliding air vent in the rear top, and sliding curved doors at the front (which are locked and there is no key), all finished in white enamel. Serial no. 4988583. Also known as a 'Revolver' micro-projector. Seems of quite recent date and not heavily used -- presumably a casualty of the wholesale replacement of such apparatus by computers in the last years of the 20th century.
