    It may be the concentration or the actual chemical structure. Sensitizing dyes (cyanines, merocyanines, etc...) are not that benign to start with.

    Hello PE,
    There is now another motivation for a V2. I have read several reports that KODAK has discontinued T-max 100 and 400 in 8x10 . There biggest film size is now 4x5. Who woulda tawt?! That company just went to Hell after you left it.

    YES. And I would pay double that in a heartbeat.

    PE - is it possible to have the color on plates and then have them all collected together at one place in the book, and then do the rest of the book in B&W? remember how they used to do that in the old days? (I.e. before I was born!)

    If most of the color is the IR stuff in green, then we could all probably live with that in monochrome since it is already monochrome.

    Or, do it all in B&W, and then make the color plates available as pdf downloads if people want to see a particular page in color.

    I'm considering all possibilities.

    Thanks.

    Update on the book

    I have one edited copy back and 3 "reviews". So far, my fellow engineers seem to think it is good enough to publish.

    I have a lot of corrections to make but progress is going on. One section was left out completely and one section was short changed.

    In addition, I got a Kodak style generation 1 super mixer today. If things go well, I will add a paragraph on it as well. There is a section on mixing, so this will fit in well.

    I will have the book and the DVDs at the GEH workshop next week. I will also have some new material with me for the members of the class.

    Thanks Kirk.

    For the information of all, the device is called a PEPA, which stands for Planar Emulsion Precipitation Apparatus. In the plant it morphed into the Multi Bank Spreader. It is basically a shrouded turbine or a device not unlike a jet engine.

    There were at least 2 or 3 variations as it evolved from the initial concept by Herb Wilgus.
