Brief Description: The limb is carried on trunions on a tripod stand. A rack and pinion, operated by two milled knobs, raises a triangular bar from within the limb. The asymmetrical body is held by a bracket, attached to a cylindrical post on the top of the bar. A mill-headed screw at the top of the post operates the fine focus. A circular stage is set on a plate that joins the limb above the trunions. The stage has a black glass face, two pinholes and rotates around the stage hole. Specimens are held in a bracket with two spring clips. A rotating disk with four apertures is mounted on the underside of the stage. The plano-concave mirror is held in a horseshoe mount on a sleeve on a post below the stage.
