  1. Re: 24 inch Red Dot Artars: Brass vs Aluminum?

    Eddie felt that the Golden and Gold dot Dagors were better centered than earlier lenses due to a centering contraption he had come up with.

    Re: 450 mm Nikkor-M vs. Symmar-S 480 mm

    I'd get a 16 1/2-19" Artar, readily available in shutter or mountable in a Copal 3 and be done with it! I've paid as little as $300 for the 19" in shutter. L

    You could get a 5x8 carrier frame similar to the 6x17 carrier insert made by DeVere.

    I have an 11x14 V-Track easel that I use and a 16x20 V-Track easel. Also have a 24x30 Saunders easel that my lab was going to throw away so I brought it home, though I doubt I'll ever use it!

    Re: Intrepid Tiny Format Enlarger

    Yes, you align a traditional enlarger once and then hopefully stays in alignment. You check it occasionally. Quite different from aligning it every time you want to use it.

    Re: Which Densitometer to Purchase?

    Remember that for film, you only need densities from 0 to 2.0 or less. So if it's accurate at lower densities, you may be ok.
