G Vertical support for the condenser, objective and mirror. 
E Lantern front holding the objective. 
E, Set screws for holding the objective in position when once centered. 
M Mirror in horizontal position. When raised 450 it serves to reflect the

Projection with Multiple Lanterns 
In the period before the common use of the moving picture 
machine, when the pictorial effect was dependent wholly on the 
magic lantern, two and even more lanterns were run simultaneously 
i. e., both were going all the time. 
§ 43. Composition of multiple lanterns.— 
1. Each lantern must be complete in itself. 
2. The size of image of each lantern must be exactly the same. 
3. The lanterns must be so placed and so inclined toward each 
other that the light discs on the screen exactly coincide. 
They are now usually placed one above the other (fig. 17). 
§ 44. Wiring for multiple lanterns.—Each lantern must have 
its own electric lamp. When the supply is no volts or less each 
lamp must be separately wired, and each lamp must also have its 
own rheostat and double-pole knife switch (fig. 2, 3). 
In case the supply is 220 volts, each lamp may be separately 
wired as just described; or both lamps may be put in series, i. e., 
along one wire, on one system of wiring, and use but a single 
§ 45. Use of multiple lanterns.—By the use of two lanterns 
there is not shown first one slide and then another simply, but one
