This chapter focuses on the practical problems encountered when attempting to record atomic-resolution images. The human skills of sample alignment, focusing, astigmatism correction, and image recording (at the right moment) are described using a worked example. Autotuning software is discussed, in addition to the choice of substrate film. The chapter ends with a summary of ancillary equipment and a check-list.

Keywords: experimental technique; astigmatism correction; focussing methods; autotuning; alignment methods

Chapter.  11472 words.  Illustrated.
