It is the glass located below the stage with both concave and flat surfaces to gather. reflect and direct the light to illuminate the specimen. It is a mechanism attached to the stage for ease in moving the slide. It is short support which arises from the base. It serves to further concentrate light rays on the specimen. Make a list of the names of these scientists. One which is found above the mirror and which regulates the amount of light reaching the specimen. . _____________9. _____________4. It is the part located between the arm and the pillar which facilitates the tilting of the microscope.
