[Taxacom] trinocular stereo microscope

The Olympus SZ61 is a great scope.  The trinocular version may be
just over $2000 (I think around $2700 new?) but depending on what
you are doing, you can also get photo adapters to go through the
eyepiece which can use a either P&S or SLR cameras with the
binocular version.  The optics are on par with a high-quality CMO
scope, and adding a 1.5x objective should give you enough
magnification for the smaller ones.  It also fits in a carry-on size
Pelican case, which is convenient for transport.  The only gripe I
have is that it doesn't have a click-stop for the zoom knob, so you
can only do accurate micrometer measurements at either the highest
or lowest zoom.
