OK!  here  goes...well  the B and L stereo zoom has a screw  in place  over 
the optics underneath... it is  for attaching close up  lenses or   
reduction in power lenses  etc.  you can also  screw in a  clear  cover.
the cover will also screw in our  the aux  lens if my brain  remembers  
Many other  stereo microscopes also have this provision  to add a  clear  
filter or aux  booster or de-creaser in power lens.   always  best to keep  
active optics  covered  with   some protection  to save  from solder splash,  
sharp things  sticking up  from scratching  etc etc...

Ditto on the second  paragraph.

But I'm not sure what you mean by a "cover thing".   Care to  elaborate?
