Thanks Sandy and Aggie:
I am not sure what caused the spot - I used the fixer formula in Sandy's artical for Kalitypes - I could try upping the does a little of Thiosulphate - it is at 50g / liter. The info on Unblinking eye gave me a lot of confidence to try this stuff and it was actually easier than I thought it would be. The woodland photo has a lot of detail and my not be such a good one for a process without a smooth emulsion. - I am ready for eggs now! I will be trying some bigger ones - I need to get a 12x15 contact frame. This is too much fun.
