The Nyquist frequency is double the sampling step. e.g. for data sampled at 5 angstroms the Nyquist frequency is 1/10 angstroms. It is important to have the sampling rate of the data high enough so that the image information stays sufficiently away from the Nyquist frequency, otherwise there is a danger that the high- resolution information in both of the reconstruction volumes may be correlated.
