The objective aperture itself can introduce astigmatism if it is not perfect centered on the optic axis. On the other hand, astigmatism changes from location to location in the vicinity of specimen support holder. Spatial resolution in EMs (electron microscopes) is very sensitive to objective astigmatism. Therefore, in order to obtain the best spatial resolution in EMs (especially in TEM) it is frequently necessary to carefully correct for astigmatism on the specimen.

In TEM imaging, objective astigmatism is conveniently adjusted by viewing the Fresnel fringes near the edge of a small hole under overfocus condition. There are also other techniques that can be used to correct the objective astigmatism.
