The Tami (Taschenmikroskop, pocket microscope) is an extremely small compound microscope, a solid and rugged instrument designed for field work. This new product line of field microscopes was launched in 1920. The concave mirror for transmitted light is sealed in a flat cylindrical metal base with a glass cover on top of it (the stage). The mirror base can be rotated to adjust the illumination and can be removed for investigations with incident light. Two extractable, straight tubes zoom the magnification of opaque or transparent objects within the range of 25x to 225x. Focusing is done with concentrical tubes linked by a thread. The front lens of the single objective is removable for low magnifications, the eyepiece threaded into the tube. A massive brass cover which can be threaded on the base serves as a transport protection for the microscope.
