I have made a very few exceptional photographs on Tech Pan. I have also lost many great shots as a result of using Tech Pan, so I'm highly conflicted about it. Some people swear by it, others swear at it.

I have a page of recommendations for developers and times from various people at http://unblinkingeye.com/Articles/Times/Te...an/techpan.html.

You might also check out my article on a possible precursor to Perfection XR-1 at http://unblinkingeye.com/Articles/XR-1/xr-1.html. The patent says: "The composition of this invention is especially useful as a developer for photographic film, and particularly for black and white high contrast photographic film comprising extremely fine-grain, silver halide emulsions." It doesn't specifically mention Tech Pan, but I think it is probably a good match--I don't have times for it, though.

Personally, I would use T-max 100 for this purpose.
