I had actually considered the safelight being the culprit before. I'm using those red safelight bulbs that Adorama sells and the one on my dry side is about 3 feet away but over my enlarger. I had started turning it off before i printed the test for Max Black which is shown in tge OP. I will use this coin to test for certainty in a couple days to find out for sure though.



And the C700 has 2 condensers...
