In a easy microscope, the plane into which the objective lens directly focuses the image of the specimen. The plane is generally situated a set distance (commonly 10 mm) adown the shoulder for the ocular and other fixed distance (generally 160 mm) behind the rear focal plane of the objective lens. The ocular forms a virtual image of the intermediate image for visual observation, or projects a real image for photo and video microscopy. Note: The objective lens, combined with the coverslip of proper thickness, is corrected for projecting the primary image to the specified intermediate image plane only.
