I was referring to the round.  Do the LED's come in the bar?

I don't know what sort of source the bar illuminators were.  That's why I thought I'd ask.  Thanks.

The round LED lights.

No need to difuse the bar lights.

I've been trying the Kimwipe diffusers on and off for a couple of months now.  I still generally get better results on the old scopes with fluorescent lighting.  Especially with bullets, it seems.

I've occasionally gotten better results with the LED's when it's an especially shiny nickel primer with a lot of 'noisy' marks.  But, I haven't seen it often enough to say for sure that it's a consistent advantage.

That is good to know about the LED lights for the FS C, we were thinking about getting them for ours.  Last year we purchased the LEEDS/Olympus comparison microscope and we love it.  The optics are amazing.  We like the lighting a lot better than the FS C plus it allows you to use the coarse focus on both stages independently.  It also allows for higher magnification which we have found to be helpful now that we have it.  I highly recommend this scope.  The other examiners at our lab love it as well.

I just ripped the old fluor. lights off of a mothballed AO and rigged the articulating arms to fit.  Not too difficult, but if you use the Fiber Optic set up a lot it might be a pain.

It's a HUUU UUU  UUUGE difference. And $ = 0 (if you have the lights)

I'm sure the warranty is shot though  ;D
