  • Patent number: 4991947
    Abstract: A microscope having two optomechanically coupled observation barrels to permit simultaneous use by two individuals. While each barrel is provided with its own eyepieces and its own magnification system, they share a common optical axis including a single objective lens and a specially designed composite prism which allows part of the observation beam (the light reflected by the object) to pass through it, undiminished, to one of the observation barrels, while the other part of this light is deflected to the other observation barrel by a mirror layer within the prism. The microscope's illumination beam is directed onto the object field along the same common optical axis followed by the returning observation beam, and this illumination is deflected into this optical axis at a point between the object field and the objective lens.
