Boom Stands
Stable Support for Stereo Microscopes and Cameras

SPOT Imaging Solutions' modular boom stands provide stability and easy positioning for stereo microscopes and cameras. The boom stands are machined and finished using high quality, durable materials to ensure that they can safely support your equipment for years to come.

Available base options include a weighted steel base, table clamp, and table mount with backing plate. Stainless steel vertical posts are available standard in 15.75" and 24" lengths but can be custom cut.

The boom stands are compatible with new and legacy stereo microscope brands including Zeiss, Olympus, Leica, Nikon, and Meiji. The boom stands also support all 76 mm stereo microscope pods and all cameras that have the standard 1/4"-20 threaded hole. The horizontal arms of the SMS15/16, SMS6B and SMS25 boom stands terminate in an industry standard bonder socket mount. Tilting and non-tilting adapters to mount cameras and stereo microscopes that don't have the industry standard bonder dowel are available separately if needed. The SMS20 boom stand catalog numbers include a heavy duty tilting and swiveling mount.
