Hi all, I have a vintage item of Rayner inspection optics that I cannot identify and would like to know what it is. I will be selling but do not know how to advertise.
It looks a kind of small microscope but when you look in the earpiece there are two distinct separate square images.
Vintage and well made. Any advice on what it is very much appreciated. Steve

That'd be a dichroscope.

Thank YOU.
Interesting as I cant find any pictures of another vintage Rayner one on the web. This will be on Ebay later today along with a nice Rayner refractometer and various sets of gemologist scales later in week. Many thanks Steve
