Yes, in fact just within the last couple of weeks I've solved most of my previous problems. I got an original Turner Reich lens so the negs are sharp now, and I had a stainless steel 14 inch X 92 inch X 4 inch deep pan made to develop the negs laying flat out. I guess I never had the dexterity to do the scroll thing and not have issues in the sky. With time limited and resources expensive, you don't want to mess around with banding in the sky all the time. So hopefully soon I'll have some good negs to brag over. Tonopah is a really neat place to use one of these.
I have done the scroll thing with 122 size film, but it is nothing compared with the multiple feet from even a smaller Cirkut. Glad you got your banding problems figured out. Will be interested in seeing the results of your efforts. Much of Northern Nevada and Eastern California is a photographer's dream.
