I can't believe the response I've had to this! Had no idea...
Anyway, I had to get all my stuff out and inventory it. I shouldn't have
said anything until I was ready.
Here's the list of stuff with comments. Some folks are considering
offering to buy the whole thing. I will consider trades (21/3.5, IS-30) in
addition to cash.
Some folks might find the B Adapter interesting. I hadn't noticed this
until this morning that it had the "M System" logo on it.
All the items are at least a 9 condition.
1 Macrophoto Stand VST-1,
1 B Adapter (this has the "M System" logo on it)
1 VST-E Extension Bar
1 Trans-illuminator base X-DE with wooden arm rests and flat/convex mirror
(no illuminator in base). Mine came with a metal "socket" for the
illuminator, but no light.
1 Auto Bellows
1 Double cable release
1 slide duplicator
1 PM-MTob mount
1 38mm/3.5 objective lens, in plastic box
1 38mm Lieberkuhn reflector
1 38mm Incident Illuminator Housing PM-EL 38 (I have stored this in a
Schneider Componon box)
1 Centering Mirror PM-EL (this has a scratch on side of mirror, but NOT on
1 Clear Stage plate w/black and white interrupters
1 45mm stage plate (still in original bag)
1 Black/white stage plate (totally opaque)
1 mechanical stage FM
1 mechanical stage plate 28mm (has 3 holes to mount stage FM)
2 LSD illuminators (the 7" version) Have Micro Optics sticker on them. Had
to acquire these from the microscope dealer since they were unavailable
through Ponder and Best in '75.
5 bulbs for LSD
2 rectangular blue filters for LSD illuminator (unopened)
1 non-Olympus power supply (from Micro Optics Company, an Olympus microscope
dealer) 10 volts AC output, 110 VAC in
1 135/4.5 Auto macro w/hood and caps, no case
1 65-116 Auto Extension tube (tube does not have tripod ring, but optics are
With the exception of the 135 and 65-116 tube, I acquired all the gear in
~'75 when I worked for Ponder and Best, the US distributors of Olympus. I
used these at product demonstrations to show the capabilities of OM compared
to the "competition". To be "safe", I placed 1/4" stick-on blue dots on my
equipment so that it wouldn't disappear when showing to customers. Those
dots are still on some of the items.
