What is low power objective in a microscope?

A low power objective in a microscope is a Small Lens with Low Magnifying Power. A microscope head with two eyepiece lenses, one for each eye. Generally this term is used in describing a high power (compound) microscope. With a low power microscope we say "stereo" head because, unlike the compound microscope, the stereo has a separate objective lens for each eyepiece lens, producing two independent paths of light, one for each eye. In the compound microscope with a binocular head, there are two eyepiece lenses but still only one objective lens and you will not get stereo vision. Hope this helps.
