Why do you need to re calibrate the eyepiece graticule with each new magnification? I'm not quite sure I understand how a changing the magnification affects the length of each division.
Sorry to be asking a question about microscopy- I'm extra grateful if you answer because its kind of a boring subject, so you're clearly just doing this to be kind!

edit : Each time we use a different magnification, the relationship btw stage micrometer units and eyepiece graticule units change tho

check slide 7 and 8 from the first presentation on this link
And no its not boring, its tricky :hide:

Yeah, it is! I don't use it that often because it's mainly OCR stuff and I'm AQA, and those fricking mark schemes are so specific that I don't want to accidentally learn the wrong exam board's mark scheme. But I should have a look again for help with explaining concepts, it seems really useful for that!
Urgh, I just realised how depressing that sentence was- I'm basically just learning mark schemes for my A level!
