 Figure 1 illustrates the light path in the two designs.
 The simplest optical microscope is the bench type (usually
 Photographic capabilities can be added to some units depending
on the rigidity of the stand. Figure 2 illustrates basic bench
microscopes, and Figure 3 shows research-quality bench
microscopes suitable for photographic work.
