I have found an item that I am interested in listed on the web site of Grainlab in Essen, Germany.

This is the item:

The price (€119,00 + €17,00 shipping) would be acceptable to me.

Before placing an order I would be glad to hear opinions regarding the reliability of this merchant, on this forum or by private site mail.

I also wonder how the connection between the lens and the slide duplicator is made. Is it necessary to use some sort of reduction ring or one just nears the slide duplicator to the lens and covers the entire setup with some dark cloth?

Thanks for your collaboration
