    Change the bulb. The 150 watt lamp creates too much heat.

    I use a sheet of ND filter, made by Lee filters, and cut it down.
    Works perfectly

    Matt, unfortunately not...

    I found a shop that sells screw-in filters with a small enough diameter to fit my enlarger lens (just 30mm; a Meopta Anaret 4.5/80mm). L Gebhardt, this is this the kind of filter you were thinking of, isn't it? (link)
    Yes, that is the type of filter I was thinking of. I use a 52mm one because it fits my 150mm enlarger lens. To use it on the 80mm I use a step up ring.

    But after seeing your recent posts I would try the 75watt bulb first. It will increase your time by more than a factor of two from the 150 watt bulb.

    Thank you, L Gebhardt, I think this is the way to go since I need a new bulb anyway and then I will see if I get the times required. If not, I will also get a ND filter.

    Thank you all for your help, everyone.
