    Mike, I know in past years we've been too busy and too exhausted to worry about developing film until later. That said, I have a nice darkroom and will make it available to folks if it's important to your experience to be able to see your results. No problem.

    I am guessing the list is completed by now, so I can go on the waiting list. I am about to email.

    I put together a lens today that I will bring to Tonopah. I had picked up a large old barrel with a nice iris that had originally been a whole plate portrait lens. I ordered some lens elements from Surplus Shack and played around with them in combinations in the barrel. I ended up with a 500 mm achromat behind the iris giving about an f/8 lens (which matches the original). It covers 8x10 with a sharpish center and fuzzy edges. Maybe Jim or his truck will pose for a portrait...

    That's great I can't wait to see that one.

    Curt, Mark Sawyer reminded me about diopters so now I have either a 500mm f/8 achromatic meniscus, or with a +1 in the front end a 330mm f/5, or with a +2 a 240mm f/3.8. The 240 will cover at head portrait distances. I've decided to not bring any lenses much younger than I am - which precludes all "modern" lenses;-).

    This sounds very neat. Happy to oblige with the truck, ummm, you'll need a wide angle if you want me in the frame. :rolleyes:

    Jim/Per- when will the workshop start on Monday(evening? Noon? 9am?) -- knowing the timeframe will change route plans to be able to make more images before arrival, perhaps stay longer at the Sunday site
