The collections manager of the Fairbanks Museum needed my assistance and my knack for snapping macro shots once again. Being able to see close in, identifying the best angles, communicating with the camera’s scope, enables me to highlight such features such as engravings that provide significant information about artifacts and natural history.
The victorian brass microscope you see was made in 1876 by a New York based company called Bausch & Lomb. The business was created in the 1850’s, specialized in lenses and eye care tools, but obviously dabbled in a few other scientifically amazing instruments such as this all too timely observation tool!
