    That might be possible if you were especially adept, but would other wise be a nuisance.

    It's sort of a no choice issue, I have moved and have no darkroom

    Have you considered using a Paterson tank and developing "taco" style?

    I could work with tray when I am on the west coast, but I do not have facilities to do that unless I go to photoworks [http://www.glenechophotoworks.org/] and use their darkrooms. I tried a number of daylight load tanks and progressed up the cost range finally ending up with a JOBO processor. Hence now I can develop color film.

    I was never successful in finding or building a workable development tent. I hope that you find something that works for you.

    Paul, NOVA do a temporary darkroom tent large enough for to get in with an enlarger and trays - http://www.novadarkroom.com/product/...room_Tent.html

    You might be able to find a second hand unit on EBay

    If I ever go 4x5 I'm getting something like this SS Nikor tank which holds 12 sheets:

    I have and use a Jumbo Harrison film changing tent. It would accommodate a series of tray quite easily but I shudder to think of the mess from splashes and spills.

    I have a series of 1 gallon (US) deep tanks with a rack which I can use only at night if I turn the house into a darkroom. It does work. But I favour using Paterson tanks for 120 and Jobo 2509N reels in 2500 tanks for 4x5.

    Cheers,

    there are plenty on ebay, search all cathories for "grow tent."

    I also know a guy who uses the Nova Darkroom tent that Martin Aislabie mentioned above and really likes it.
