I am looking for a place to purchase a new gemology microscope with camera.
I have purchased two in the past from established businesses, paid good money for them, but neither have produced photomicrographs of the quality that I am looking for. I’ve taken lots of photomicrographs in the past using petrographic microscopes using transmitted and reflected light.
This time I would like to purchase from a vendor who has physical location that I can visit, use the microscope, take a few photomicrographs, and see the results before making the purchase. Travel anywhere in North America is not a problem.
Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you.
