Since a good image depends on good light, it makes sense to choose a sturdy, bright source.  The Alpha 1502 fiber optic illuminator is just the solution:  a superb source of brilliant, white, cool light for working with a stereo inspection microscope.  Brightness is fully adjustable using a knob on the unit's chassis.
Every serious micromounter or micromineral collector should have one of these.  Great for photomicrography!  The Alpha 1502's cool light won't shatter delicate crystals the way ordinary lights can.
The Alpha 1502 is also ideal for:
Dentistry / Orthodontics
Dissection Labs
Electronics Inspection
....and any other use where a cool light source is desired.   

There is quite a difference between this an and ordinary light source (e.g., a desk lamp.)  The cool lighting provided by the Alpha 1502 allows for full, bright, even lighting of the subject being studied.  It eliminates harsh shadows.  If you use a macroscope for your daily work, or you're a serious hobbyist, this type of lighting is indispensable.
