I found a Beseler 23C (I think a Series 2) with a universal with baseboard and:

a Astranar(sp?) 75mm lens

35mm film holder

Easel 8X10 on one side, multiple sizes on the other

Vivitar two reel plastic 35mm developing tank

A few trays, a couple of funnels and a thermometer.

I want to B&W developing. I am assuming if I want to use Ilford paper and filters I can just hold the filter under the lens with my hand.

He wants 100, but is willing to do $50, is this a decent and usable deal for me.

I realize I still need a timer, focuser, etc, but is this usable and a good deal for what I want.


Is is so good to be doing film again, I have missed it.
