    Locating a Manual for my Beseler 23CII

    Hi Guys- I was just given a full darkroom set up a about a week ago and I have had some fun printing and processing. I understand how to use it but I would like to go through the manual. I gave Beseler a call and they wanted $70 :o for the manual. Does anyone know where I can find a copy online (preferably one that is free). Thanks--Patrick

    What do you need to know?

    12.95 here: http://www.khbphotografix.com/Besele...lerManuals.htm

    But really, they are so simple. We have 11 of them in our college darkroom and I've never look at a manual.

    Or buy it on eBay for $9.95: http://cgi.ebay.com/Beseler-23C-II,-...01171005r21089

    Personally, I'd plug it into your timer, turn the cranks, open and close the light trap for the negative carriage, turn on the lamp, focus the lens, and that's about it.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Try http://www.darkroompro.com/pdf/enlargers/index.html at Darkroom Pro. That page lists the enlarger you have and selecting it will provide a PDF download.

    Here is an instruction page on how to align your 23C.

    http://www.conradhoffman.com/beseler01.htm

    I do have a link to the manual somewhere but can't seem to locate it just now. It may be a PDF on my other computer.

    If I find it I'll PM ya.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    And just for the historical record in case some other link doesn't work, here's my manual I scanned in a while back:
