    My Ronar 480 works fine but usually I use a APO Nikon 610 mm f 9 which is on the camera now.

    Thanks for the thread references. The additional effect of the bellows distance is something I hadn't considered. Cool shots of your camera! That is an amazing setup with the Reinhold 790 mm. I need to study these threads.

    I also have a 610mm Apo Nikkor. Here's a couple of pics:

    My sister is into woodworking. She built the box containing the electric, behind the lens shutter. It is hooked up to a darkroom timer (and flash units).

    Cool, is that a shutter box?

    I put my 4" ID Packard behind the the first lens board opening.
    Vive la révolution!

    I'm afraid I don't know what the correct terminology is. It has a leaf shutter with large leaves. There is a spring mounted drive inside that is electrically triggered. It automatically closes and resets when the power stops. My darkroom timer goes down to 1/10 second, so that's as fast as It can go. The box attaches to the camera the same way a lens board does and it has lens board receptor on the front (6"). It makes a fairly loud clunk when triggered. I like it a lot. I'd like to do something similar with my 890 mm.

    I have an electric behind the lens shutter that came with the 890mm Apo-Nikkor. I was wondering if anyone knew if this has a method of flash sync built in. Also, does anyone know what type of plug that is on the board? Thanks.Click image for larger version.

    Another question, I have a lens board adapter that came with my Commercial Deardorff. It apparently converts a 11" board holder to an 8" board holder. It is also recessed with the ability to mount the 8" lens board on either side. The way my Deardorff is configured, it takes an 8" lens board. Would anyone know if there is a configuration that takes a 11" lens board? Click image for larger version.

    There can always be a custom variation. Your long lens on a 11" board most like came from a Industrial Process camera. Maybe the box is adapted to your camera for that lens.

    The SC 11 is not that, but it can use that big lens, if wanted.

    Your shutter is something else, perhaps operated by DC or AC and not a true Packard. https://packardshutter.com/ There were variations on the design.

    I prefer the traditional Packard with Bulb and Hose as it is gentle compared to a solenoid and is easy to open the shutter for focus, or time.

    I am very glad Packard still makes their long lasting product. I must have 6 installed and working.

    Thanks for your response. I wasn't aware that Packard is still selling shutters. What is an "SC 11"?
