Doremus...

I did a final test and you were correct that moving the easel did not cause my issue! I framed the image by moving the easel and made sure that the edge of the negative was apx 1/2 inch from the blade and i got a straight line line you mentioned.. I'm very happy to lean that i dont have to center the easel under the lens, i have more options now on how i want to frame the print.. It was the condensers that caused the issue. Thanks!!
