jQuery animate callback problem

I'm getting an error attempting to change a CSS value on an animate callback. Sorry, I'm a bit new at this. The animate works, but where I insert $('#slide'+prevImage).css('left', '864px') after a comma, I get an error. Is there something wrong with my syntax? Thank you!

My test page:
http://www.dis-hfm.com/default.htm

My Javascript:
$(function(){
	var prevImage=1;
	var nextImage=1;
	var maxImage=5;
	var intervalID=setInterval(slideAnimation,1000);

	function slideAnimation(){
		prevImage=nextImage;
		if (nextImage==maxImage){nextImage=1;} else {nextImage++;}
		$('#slide'+nextImage).animate({left:'-=864px'},{
			$('#slide'+prevImage).css('left', '864px')
		});
	};
});

Try:

...
$('#slide'+nextImage).animate({left:'-=864px'}, function() {
	$('#slide'+prevImage).css('left', '864px');
});

you should probably include your time for the animation and 'wrap' your call back in a function...

Here is your code, modified:
$('#slide'+nextImage).animate({
     left:'-=864px'}, 500, function(){
     $('#slide'+prevImage).css('left', '864px')
});

Here is a jsFiddle showing an example I just created: Animate using Jquery will callback
