In the past week I've acquired and (now) used my first enlarger. Prior to that I made the occasional print on an enlarger at work and years ago at high school.

It's a Gnome Alpha Deluxe -- for everything from 6x9 to 35mm -- and has a Wray Supar 3 1/4" f4.5 triplet lens.

I believe they are British made and, I think, made some time in the 1950s. As far as I know the lens is original.

The first few prints I've made look fine -- not as good as on the DeVere at work which has a top-flight lens -- but really not bad at all.
