Hi All,

I have a student coming in who is left-handed but my camera lucida is set up for right-handed drawing on my stereoscope. Can the drawing tube be safely rotated for use by a left-handed person? Feels like a silly question but I wanted to ask if anyone has experience doing this before attempting it myself!


Thanks in advance...
