Using a compound light microscope.

Could proteins or ribosomes be seen best using a compound light microscope?

resolution of a light microscope is too small --> it's impossible to see separate ribosomes with a lightmicroscope.

I was trying to say that too. You can only see nucleus clearly with a light microscope.
