When is it recommended to begin viewing the specimen with the low power objective?

For the same reason it's easier to focus when zooming into a picture rather than zooming out.


Using the low power objective (LPO) gives us an overview of a specimen. If there is anything specific you want to observe, it would be easier to identify it first using the LPO and then zooming in on it using the high power objective (HPO).
