    D*mn - I just threw mine away!

    It refused to stay focused, so I had to remember to adjust it before I used it. Every time. In the end I decided that I should try the built-in focussing aid (split line) in the neg carrier - both of my enlargers have them - and found I got better, sharper prints that way.

    Like Mick, I have the el-cheapo patterson and it's great.

    Note that I also have a split line auto-focus thingy on my enlarger neg tray but when I compare it against the focus scope there is a clear difference in favour of the focus scope. Apart from my RH analyser it's the most appreciated thing in the darkroom to make my life easier.

    So, can you check/calibrate the Magna Sight?

    I haven't used one yet, but picked up a second-hand unit to help with alignment of my 2D with carrier & cold light back. Is calibration necessary?

    I use the Kaiser Focuscop and as it can be used with both eyes open like a mini slide viewer, it is so precise and easy to use.

    got hand of one today, and did some tests... 9 out of 10 focused by eye, is not "correct"... Seems like it was wise getting one...

    Cool thing is, thou: After getting a great deal on a Paterson major focusfinder, i get an email from a guy who has another. Think i'll be keeping both, the manual (yep, i read them..) for the paterson states that its suited for 3 1/2 enlargements and up.... Got hand of a 70x70cm tray today, so it might come in handy...

    Has anyone heard of a binocular grain focuser?
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.
