Background information - What is transmission electron microscopy?
It allows detailed micro-structural examination through high-resolution and high magnification imaging. 
Focus/stigmation
To achieve good focus by eye, at high magnifications, it is helpful to focus on the ‘grain’ of the sample support film. 
Image appearance
At high magnification, crystals may exhibit diffraction contrast. 
Inorganic sample/physical science specimen preparation for TEM
 
Machine operating procedures
Instructions/procedure for using for low magnification (biological science use)  
Resolution
The concepts of resolution and magnification are often confused. 
The Eucentric Position
TEMs are set up so that magnification, camera length, and correct focus are set to this reference position. 
Using the JEM-1010 Transmission Electron Microscope for physical science material
Chamber screen should now be filled with green light. If there isn’t any light, ensure the camera is out (press red light on camera control); check that the magnification is not extremely high; or possibly a grid bar is blocking the beam. 
Using the JEM-1010 Transmission Electron Microscope for thin resin sections of biological material
Chamber screen should now be filled with green light. If there isn't any light, ensure the camera is out (press red light on camera control); check that the magnification is not extremely high; or possibly a grid bar is blocking the beam.
