    Joe, this is what I've been doing so far.
    But it feels awkward to do so after a while, and I would like to be able to see the whole negative (or most of it) at the same time.

    Since I am a bit on a budget, on some catalogue I have found a few very cheap "general purpose" loupes (I don't think they are strictly targeted to the photographer, but more to somebody who works on tiny objects like clocks, etc... ) And they are available at those magnifications that I have mentioned before.

    From your contributions, 4X seems to be a good starting point, while I guess that for a 10X the optical quality should be more critical.

    If I know anything about the Floating Flotsam - he was out to get a giggle with a little note of f[font='Times New Roman'][font=Verdana][size=2]acetiousness[/size][/font] [/font]. Your good reputation is preceeding you.

    Thanks John,
    I assumed that it was a triplet but the description didn't mention it.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I've been asking Santa for a Satin Snow ground glass so Dave, if you receive an order from the North Pole, please expedite it.

    I meant that it wasn't mentioned on the JandC website.

    Man, my chops are getting sore on this thread.
