Leica Microsystems Inc. has introduced its S6D stereomicroscope with 6:3:1 zoom. The high-performance, low-cost, camera-ready model is ideal for industrial stereomicroscopy and documentation applications. Like the entire StereoZoom(R) line, the S6D incorporates the company's optics to produce images with high resolution and contrast. The robust, single-cam design and patented magnetic zoom lens mounting system ensure smooth control and trouble-free use. A rugged outer shell made of patented Zerostat(TM) polymers provides years of maintenance-free protection from electrostatic discharge.
