It is movable to permit of focusing at different screen distances. 2 Field lens of the projection ocular. d Diaphragm where the real image is formed. the specimen to be photographed must be of special excellence for all powers. No one will doubt the truth of the statement who undertakes to make photo-micrographs at a magnification of 500 to 2000 diameters. If one has a complete outfit with electric arc light the time required for photographing objects is much reduced, i.e., ranging from 1 to 20 seconds even with the color screen. As the light is so intense with the arc light it is necessary to soften it greatly for focusing. Several thicknesses of ground-glass placed between the lamp and the microscope will answer. These are removed before taking the negative. It is well also to have a water bath on the optical bench to absorb the radiant heat. This should be in position constantly (see fig. m, 131). 367.
