The Diavert is an inverted stage manual reflectance microscope, which is currently not equipped with a digital camera. The Nikon DXM-1200 digital camera from the Axiovert 35 is transferred to this instrument when need. It is normally configured with the following reflection objectives: 10X; 50X; and 100X all dry. This instrument is used most often for routine reflection measurements.
