    In addition to the 19 and 24" Artars I have for the 14x17 I just picked up today a 16x13 E. Suter Basel Aplanat B #6 with one waterhouse stop. I also have a like new blue coated Ilex 375mm F-7 lens that looks very sharp on the ground glass. Going to use them this weekend in Joshua Tree.

    Excellent! I can't wait to see your creation and hopefully prints you'll make with them. Sorry I missed your show in OC - a couple of friends convinced me to go to Death Valley that weekend.

    I'll be sure to post some images taken with these lenses both on the 14x17 and the 8x10. I made a reducing board for the 14x17 and mounted these lenses on my Seneca Boards so I can use them on the 8x10, 11x14 and 14x17.

    Curious, too. Greetings from Basel. The house Emil Suter lived in is still standing.

    Not surprised that the house is still standing. There were several old homes in Davos that were very well maintained when I lived there many, many winters ago. He made beautiful lenses with great coverage.
