Your viewpoint is stationary and the sample is moving underneath you.
The stage is stationary and your viewpoint is traveling over the sample.
Sometimes it seems like option #1, sometimes it seems like option #2
None of the above (please post your own perception with an explanation).

Stage Motion "Point of View" Perspective
« on: December 04, 2013, 11:46:03 AM »
I'm interested in understanding the psychological "perspective" of EPMA users with regard to stage motion and on how "it seems to you" when moving to a new sample location on your EPMA instrument.
