очень приятно, что русская техника вам понравилась (it's a pleasure to hear that you like Russian photo equipment ). The non-standart working distances of Russian lenses is a long-known pain, but once you've managed to put it on the enlarger, it would work fine
Judging from overall looks of my Fuji, it should be made around early 70s, so probably it employs an old-style colour head Though quite dim it is, the quality of light it produces is plainly superb - that's why I want to learn how to make perfect prints with it And I love the overall quality of it, it's built to last, and the filters are like new.
ДОН color enlarger... hm... they were produced in very small series, and I used it once or twice, in University - to be frank, the mechanical quality of it was not comparable to foreign-made analogues, especially the negative carriers.
I asked my friend to buy a grain magnifier for me on Ebay - so sooner or later I would be able to focus without too much squinting
