Based on the great feedback I have received from Met-List members, I have decided to go with a gently used, Nikon binocular/trinocular zoom microscope.? I have narrowed it down to either a Nikon SMZ-2 or SMZ-10.

Does anyone have a manual for the SMZ-10?
How hard will it be for me to find accessories like ~0.5x and 2x objective lens that don't require a 2nd mortgage?

Seems like every scope has slightly different dimensions and so the accessories are custom.? Seems like the eyepieces are standard.? Is that correct?

By the way, the scope will be used to take pics of macro features on meteorites.? Not quite yet ready to jump into thin slices ... yet.
