Subject: RE: [roots] j.McSpadden micro-imaging

I would like to get users opinions or reviews of the Seiler 202/402
microscope, it is the very basic microscope that Seiler stock.  It
would be my first scope (I am a generalist dentist with an interest in
Endo) and I want to know how adequate or not it will be for my basic
needs  -  Abdul Parmar

I have used the Revelation for a long time, but never used the less
expensive scopes. I might have mine for sale IF the buyer does not
wish to use mine. BUT I will not know for a while. IF anyone wishes to
be contacted later let me know. I have mine wall mounted and also have
a portable floor mount.

A 80 20 splitter with a mount for a video and a digital camera. The
video comes with it, I am keeping the Nikon.

PS, BUT for this post, you should be able to get a free demo. All the
major companies have good scopes, so SERVICE is most important - Alan Cady

Abdul, You will be happy with the Seiler 202. I have sold many of them here 
in the USA and the endodontists are very happy with their purchase.. 
It is an entry level scope and works well. Barry Musikant has 6 of them, 
Kit Weathers uses them and I have many endodontists Endodontists all across
the country that use them everyday. For the money the 202 is very good.
Take a look at it and check it out - Stefan Luger , Microscope Consultant 
and Trainer

Stefan,  I agree with endo. IF he is also going to do restorative than a 
5 or 6 step and hands on by you would be a better option. IF I did not have
my 3.0 X to use once in a while on a complex prep, I would find it more 
difficult to do 3 or 4 units in one quadrant. I use the next 5 or 6 a lot and the 8 
about as much as that, use the 16 less and the 20 more sparingly in 
restorative. I use the middle 3 almost exclusively on endo, so a 3 strep, 
as you state can be just right. Guy gas this set up - Alan Cady
