ACT Base - Advanced Contrast Transmitted

ACT Base

  • transmitted light, bright- and darkfield
  • switchable segments
  • moveable "semi-diaphragm aperture"
    for "relief contrast" (kind of 3D effect)
  • easy creation of mixed lighting scenarios
  • quick switching from brightfield to darkfield
  • adaption diameters ø 84/90/100/120/180 mm
