The design approach for electron precession systems designed at Northwestern University is described, and examples of systems retrofitted onto two different transmission electron microscopes using this method are demonstrated. The precession diffraction patterns from these instruments are of good quality while simultaneously being very easy to acquire. A 15-minute procedure for aligning these instruments is described in the appendix. Partnering this user-friendly and inexpensive hardware implementation with fast and user-friendly crystallography software offers potentially speedy and routine solution of crystal structures.
