The Nikon S, Nikon Lke, and Other Microscopes

These are a few microscopes from my collection. Some are early vintage brass scopes and some are newer vintage scopes that I use almost daily during the spring and summer. My favorites are the black Nikon S scopes that were first released in the 1960s and are still hallmarks of versatility and quality and have developed a faithfull following despite their age. The Nikon SBR was the first, the Nikon Ske and Nikon Skt, were research grade microscopes, and the Nikon Lke with constant Kohler illumination and changeable nosepiece was the top of the line in its day. Nikon designed these scopes with many interchangeable components so that a scope could be customized to every application. Although these microscopes were all metal and very rugged, the only design flaw with the Nikon S model microscopes was the use of plastic for the fine focus gear.
