    Beseler 23c II with Zone Six cold Light

    I'm wondering if anyone has an idea of what this enlarger might be worth.

    Thanks

    You could look on Ebay. Might be better to sell the enlarger and light source separately. A assume it is not a variable contrast cold light heat. I think you would be lucky to get $200 total.

    Yes it has a new arista variable contrast light. I think that it's the V54.

    I also have the older bulb. I suppose that I could sell that as well.

    Thanks.

    BTW: I wasn't able to find any on ebay of late.

    I can't address this one specifically, but the research I did while trying to get rid of my Omega D2V with a compliment of lenses and accessories, including Zone VI head and stabilizer, led me to believe it would be hard to get more than a couple of hundred for any enlarger these days.

    The 23c II was a great enlarger. I started with one back in 1970, and it's still the most enjoyable enlarger I ever used.

    It is absolutely amazing that such fine equipment is going for pennies on the dollar. I just bought a Zone VI 4x5 camera, lens, 16 film holders and a beautiful Zone VI tripod for less than a thousand dollars. It's sad in some ways, but it the flight to digital has given the serious hobbiest a chance to own equipment he could only dream about.

    My Beseler 23 is a great enlarger, but I'm stepping up to an Omega D5 so that I can enlarge the new 4x5 negs.
