|Dimensions||24 × 16 × 14 in|

|OEM Name||American Optical (AO)|
The American Optical Model 52S pillar stand is for large opaque specimens. It must be used with a focusing yoke, type 562, when the stand is combined with the StereoStar series of microscopes. When used with the Series 55 Cycloptic stereo microscopes, the focus drive with mounting pin is a part of the microscope body.
The base is very heavy (about 40 pounds) and of large dimensions (10 inches by 10.5 inches, and 1.5 inches tall). The pillar includes a stop ring clamp that allows the boom to rotate 360 degrees. Vertical excursion ranges from 3.25 to 14 inches (center of boom to table surface). Horizontal excursion ranges from 3.375 to 16.5 inches (center of pillar to center of pin bore).
Unique clamping arrangement allows securing both the vertical and horizontal motions with a single knob. Square boom construction prevents accidental tipping of the microscope about the axis of the boom.
The stands are in excellent condition with some signs of use. Stands do not include a focusing yoke, Model 562, which must be added if one is using a StereoStar type pod.
