    I would use D-23. The chemicals (2) are easy to obtain and develop. It is by design a soft working developer and easy to control.

    I don't carry a scale or any other crutch to compute bellows factors. I simply compare FL and bellows length to the f-scale. Simple to do, and lengthy to explain, but very accurate.

    Re: Fungus on antique Lens: Can it be fixed?

    If you decide to take the lens apart, good old Listerine is as good as it gets to kill the fungus. Not the flavored, but the original awful tasting stuff.
