Interesting observation Ralph, I have to say that I did not think of that as the reason for the two reflections, I assumed that the weaker of the two was bounced from the opal glass cover on the lamp housing. I think Mike's post would support that theory and I intend to do the same as he did when I next print. I do know that my enlarger is always perfectly in alignment for I sometimes work with the lens wideopen and still have pin sharp grain across the whole of the image.
