Good Evening All,
I'm having some problems getting even illumination from my Omega D2V enlarger. I noticed that the center of my 8x8" prints are dark in the middle with lighter edges. At first I thought it was my camera, then I switched to the 23C and problem is gone.
I'm using a 80mm Nikkor lens enlarging 6x6. I have the adjustable condenser lens set to the LOWEST position. Also the lens board is flat, no cone. The condensers are clean. I exposed a sheet without a negative and you can clearly see the dense areas, not even in the center of the print as well as a hot spot in the print. Any idears on whats up with this crazy enlarger?
