• Press lightly on your Camera’s Shutter Button to allow your Camera to focus on the Specimen. • Press your Camera’s Shutter Button fully to take the Picture. Most Digital Cameras -- like your Brain -- will automatically select an appropriate “White Balance” for Photomicroscopy. The Microscope Lamp is an Incandescent Bulb that produces a more reddish Light than Sunlight (and the Lab Fluorescent Lights produce a more greenish Light than Sunlight). If your Pictures have a reddish or yellowish cast, try accessing “White Balance” on the Menu and switch to “Tungsten” (or to a Pictogram of an Incandescent Light Bulb or of a House) Your Digital Camera can also take Pictures of your Microscope that ʼ ll come-in mighty handy for learning the Microscope Parts and Locations. ____________________________________________________________________ “May I ask why a Jedi Knight is all the way out here on Geonosis?” I'm tracking a bounty hunter named Jango Fett.

Lab 3 Page 15 Clean-up and Storage of Your Microscope Each Microscope is used by twelve different MIC 101 Lab Students, so please be Considerate about Clean-Up. If your Microscope is not being kept Clean and you’re doing your Part, call your TA over prior to storing your Microscope. Your TA can then vouch for your Clean-Up and can initiate a Search for the Guilty Party -- who just might get taken into the Hall and thrown against the Wall. Prolonged Exposure to Immersion Oil can do a Number on the Cement used for your Microscope Objectives, so please be thorough about removing all Immersion Oil during Clean-Up. • Remove your Slide from the Stage. • Carefully clean Immersion Oil off of the 100X Objective with Lens Paper It ʼ s best to tear-out a Sheet of Lens Paper and then tear this Sheet in Half. Use one Half to “blot” the Oil from the Lens -- you ʼ ll see the Lens Paper turn Clear -- and then use the other Half to wipe the Oil from the Lens. You might need more than one Sheet to get the Job done well. The 100X Objective is mounted in a Spring-loaded Retraction Stopper that is designed to retract a bit (kind of like a Doorbell Button) if you ʼ re careless enough to ram the Objective into the Slide. Immersion Oil just loves to hide-out in this circular Area around the Retraction Stopper. So clean as much Oil as you can from the Lens, then wait a Minute or so and clean the Lens again. You ʼ ll almost always find that more Oil has oozed-out of the Retraction Stopper. The Lens can be considered Oil-Free when you hold a Piece of Lens Paper against the Lens and it comes away without any Clear Spots. • Turn the Lens Turret so the 10X (Yellow) Objective Lens is in place.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
