Microscope Review Lab 2. Calculate the total magnification of an object being viewed under both the light  microscope and the stereomicroscope. To calculate the total magnification of an object under a light microscope, you must multiply the  magnification of the eyepiece times the magnification of the objective lens.  To calculate the total magnification of an object under a stereomicroscope, you just read the  magnification on the lens.  4. Observe how the microscope changes the position of the specimen when compared to its  placement on the stage.  When a specimen is placed on the stage of a compound light microscope, it appears as a mirror  image through the eyepiece. When the stage is moved, the specimen appears to be moving in the  opposite direction that it actually is moving. When a specimen is placed on the stage of a stereomicroscope, the specimen appears the same
