Q:  What are Achromatic, PLAN, and Semi-PLAN?

A:  Achromatic is a standard lens type designed to reduce or eliminate chromatic (color) aberration.  Semi-PLAN and PLAN optics are improvements over the basic type.  They "flatten" the field of view (i.e., more of the subject appears in the plane of focus).  Full PLAN optics are the most expensive but allow the greatest "flattening" of the image.  




Q:  What is Koehler Illumination and why would I need it?

A:  The image quality of a microscope depends not only on its lenses but also on the focus and evenness of the light source.  Koehler illumination adds another diaphragm to the light path, allowing for finer adjustment, elimination of stray light, and more uniform illumination.

If your budget can cover the extra $85 or so, the Koehler upgrade kit (#R3-KHL) is worth it.
