All times are UK.
I will have PowerPoint presentations and videos clips to fill the remaining time slots.

Tony Pattinson
How to do measurements.
Tony covers this in one of his books as the purely manual, scale micrometer and graticule system, then goes on to show how to use software such as ToupView to produce a calibration file, carry out measurements and add a scale. Once the basics are grasped, there are many other things that can then be done. A presentation package for the manual elements, and the software part as a live demo.

13:10
Alan Wood
A demonstration of taking a photomicrograph.
Starting with adjusting the illumination, then adjusting the image in a tethering program, taking a series of images, combining them in a stacking program, and then editing the merged image.
