Sharing Discoveries and Experiences of the Microscopic World

The Digital Sight 1000 optional microscope camera is simple to operate and ideal for use with the Eclipse Ei. Not only can users record images and videos of specimens, but they can also simultaneously observe images with others via a monitor or network.

Perfect for online education

By connecting the Digital Sight 1000  camera to a tablet PC equipped with NIS-Elements L  imaging software, images of specimens on the Eclipse Ei can be easily shared in real time with other PCs and smart devices. This system is a powerful tool for virtual teaching using web conferencing services.


Simple, Intuitive Interface

The body of the Eclipse Ei is designed to provide smooth and seamless operation which facilitates quick observation. Simple and intuitive markings on the Eclipse Ei, from illustrations to color-coding, enable students to quickly understand how to operate the various aspects of the microscope.


Lighting status can be checked at a glance

Reversed-type nosepiece

Stress-free stage operation

Fine focus with either hand

The power switch and light intensity control knob are all located at the front.

You can check which objective is in use and change magnifications without other objectives getting in the way.

The simple stage shape has no bothersome projections on either side.

The coarse/fine focus knobs for moving the stage up and down are positioned on both sides of the microscope.


The best aperture can be set intuitively

Safe and secure focusing

Tube orientation displayed during storage

The lever positions of the condenser aperture are color-coded and matching the objectives.

Stage height limits can be set to prevent specimen and objective collision and damage.

The tube can be rotated to reduce the space required for storage by loosening the tube locking screw. The tube is designed so that it does not fall.

The Eclipse Ei features a compact, light-weight body that saves space and is easy to handle, as well as a robust design that is built to last. It is easy to carry and store, reducing the stress of setting it up and storing it.


Compact, space-saving design

Nikon’s optical technology captures specimen details with stunning clarity and true colors

Nikon has been developing and refining optical technology since its founding in 1917. The Eclipse Ei features Nikon’s high quality optics resulting from over 100 years of optical expertise.


High definition, large FOV optical system

The dedicated  CFI BE2 Plan Achromat series objective and the 10X eyepiece achieve a large field of view of 20*, enabling students to find their target specimen or structure more quickly. Infinity-corrected objectives with excellent image flatness and chromatic aberration correction provide high-contrast images that accurately capture the color and shape of specimens.

Uniform brightness right up to the periphery of the field of view

The illumination system is equipped with a fly-eye lens to achieve uniform brightness across the entire field of view. Low heat generating, long-life LEDs are utilized as the light source.
