A microscopy system for automatically locating and re-locating objects-of-interest in an image which has one or more objects against a background. Each of the objects-of-interest is characterized by a predetermined set of features. In a preferred form, the invention is specifically directed to an automated microscopy system which is adapted for automatically analyzing biological (e.g., blood or cervical) cells on microscope slides. In other forms of the invention, differing types of objects may be identified as being objects-of-interest during a first automated pass and then re-located during a second pass for further analysis.
