    ok I have light hung and unity appears ready... I have coated a sheet of Bergger cot 320 with a brush(looks pretty good, some uneveness noted on this first attemp). How long will the coated paper be stable if keep in a light tight safebox? I'm hoping for about 24 hrs because I got some emergencies to attend to before making the first exposure. Also , does anyone know about the settings for the light sensor unit?

    It will keep for 24+ hours. You'll want to re-humidify it though, before printing, especially at this time of year.

    Ok! so This is the 2nd step tablet image (I was sooooo.. excited I threw the closest negative I could find with it). The 1st step tablet was under exposed by what looked like 2 steps ( after coating and drying I cut the paper in 3rds to make 3 seperate exposures). For the second exposure (this one I uploaded today in the gallery titled "EXCITED!)) I cranked in another 100 units into the light integrator and this what I got. I know that the brushing on this first coating I've done sucks but oh,well the next will be better. I used drops, 6,6,1(NA2 20%), done on Bergger cot 320. The step tablet indicates range between 1.35-1.40. The Nuarc VFC43 can cook but with like integrator it is very easy to keep under control. If your there Sandy,Miller, JPL, Theflyingcamera ,et al. I did push the 6000 watt button this a.m. about 4:50 and ran out the exposure booth we built around the thing and went outside and oh yeah it lit up the place ! My dog was out taking a crap and it stopped her and two early morning passers-by on the road a 300yrds away ! To quote Forrest Gump, "thats all I'm gonna say about that". Now that I've broken the ice I am relieved and ready to really learn how to make meaniful images with what I have named "The Nug's Lighthouse" . Thanks guys for the humor that made the frustration of getting up and running less painful ! I'm sure as I get further down the road you'll see my dire request for help.....

    Miles, Soo funny. Thanks for a laugh to start today. I am happy that things are working out for you.

    Thanks for this last post Miles, that explains my alarm clock, VCR timer and other grid connected timers were of this morning.
