When the pupil of the eye is directed half over the edge of the prism, the observor sees the image of the objcct with half the pupil and the drawing paper with the other half (fig. 19). This sin~ultaneousv i e ~ i n g of paper and object allows the artist to trace the outline of the image with fidelity.
The image is traced on the paper as you look into the microscope. By varying the objective and the eyepiece magnifications, you can make the image larger or smaller. The cautions about properly balanced lighting and alignment of elements made concerning the camera lucida (p. 33) also apply here. On older models that lack a lock for the mirror position, check the angle of the mirror by placing a small cube or cylinder (end up) on the drawing paper and manipulating the rnirror until you see only the top, not the sides, of the test object.
