    Re: Coverage of 19 inch Red Dot Artar?

    Morley Baer liked the 19" Red Dot Artar (used, of course, on his 8 X 10 Ansco.) In his book Adobes In the Sun he says "If I have a favorite, the 19" must be it."

  6. Re: Camera and accessories manuals resource

    Thank you very much for this. Just browsing turned up an interesting (to me anyway) nugget from the C.P. Goerz American Optical Company that led me to send them a contribution.
  7. Re: Preferences for 150-165mm lenses in 8x10?
