    BTW, I finally got my satin snow ground glass for the 7X17 Canham and had a chance to work with for a couple of weeks in Montana and Wyoming. Dave brought it down to me while I was at the Formulary and I put it on right away.

    This is a very high quality ground glass, as many of you who already own satin snow screens know already. I found that it offered a definite improvement in both brightness and detail over a ground glass that I made from 400 grit aluminium oxide, and the glass I made is no slouch.

    Anyway, thanks to Dave for a great product. Now if I can just keep from breaking the glass. I do this a lot, but might luck out here because I actually have a ground glass protector on the Canham.

    Im with you sandy...
    I finally ended up "re"ordering an 8x10 and 7x17. Have a reserve for both cameras now.

    They are really a great product.
    dave does a fantastic job.

    Hear, hear! I'll echo your sentiments! :smile:

    The SatinSnow is definitely brighter than the standard screens by about a stop or so!

    My 3rd ground glass is, hopefully, on its way soon... :smile:

    Cheers
