Well

if something looks wrong it probably is

I just repeated the process this morning and get perfect prints with no effort on a #4

the problem? -> I diluted the dektol 1:1 (like my d-76 film process ... like a moron) instead of 1:3 for my tray process.

sigh

well, while I'm on the subject ... I buy dektol as a powder and make the stock solution as per the kodak directions. I normally put 1:3 of dektol into the tray and develop the print for 3 min. I don't do many prints and discard when finished.

anyone have any thoughts / suggestions on this? (incase my mind is not working on other areas ... sigh)
