You've gotten great advice so far, but if it doesn't help--our problem was
that the specimen head was loose--even when it was locked, it would move
very slightly.  This has to be fixed by servicing it, unfortunately.  It was
caused by our MD/PhD student trying to adjust the specimen head when it was
locked, hence loosening the screws.  It happened even though I told the guy
to quit doing it, which drove me mad.
How some people get this far is beyond me.
