[sdiy] stereo optical microscope for assembly and repair

For years I've been using regular Bresser scientific binocular 
microscope bought for about $400 or so if I remember. It has 7x to 40x 
zoom which was indeed helpful and used full range a few times. Soldering 
fumes poluted optics over time and cleaning is a lot of pain. So finally 
I cut lens protective ring out of polycarbonate glass and it's OK now.

Tried HDMI scope for a while but latency and not the best picture 
quality quickly made this idea stupid.

Now I'm using something else, but despite being outside requested $400 
range, it is not mindblowing at all when compared to my old Bresser.
