Look at big teeth but as they go smaller I look at the gaps - drop the saw into alternate gullet and repeat the same stroke from one end of the saw to the other, ideally without stopping, not least because it's much faster.Dunno how you sharpen a saw if you don't look at individual teeth, Jacob!
With a fine saw I felt tip first so I can see where I've been with the file.
Did try magnifying lamps etc when I first started but gave up! Instead doing almost blind by feel. Don't really 'correct' anything, just try to do it evenly - no mental effort required!
PS it works for me and I like sawing with a sharp saw. The raggedy edge never gets much better but then it doesn't get any worse either. Wouldn't do for a saw doctor of course - you'd expect perfection if paying for it
