    awaiting arrival of a velostigmat WF 20" process and hoping it will have good coverage as a taking lens on 8 x 10 plus couldnt find info on a 20 WF in the old catalogs

    thanks John,
    the chart shows 19 inch and 25 inch with the 19 covering 14 x 17 full plate, but i am supposing that means at 1:1 since this is a process lens?

    Dave, I got one some time ago and can't recall if it says it's a Velostigmat or not. But I wrote about it here. Shine a pin lamp into that bad boy when you get it. If you see 2 brights and 3 dims per group, it's the protar type. I know they changed to dialyts fairly early on though. If it is the protar type it'll cover that bad old 14X17 with movements. And have very nice contrast to boot.
