IMHO the schmidt camera is the ultimate emulsion photography tool!
Kodak gold 200 is cheap and found everywhere. Who needs E200 in 35mm format?

I got both 8 and 5.5 SC but I converted mine to use ccd chip
I found cutting film bits and handling them just to much.
but dont get me wrong for those that use film - god bless

this is an interesting link for reciprocity failure of various films. Fuji Acros tables are worth study/verification. Giorgo lets coordinate a common Schmidt field test.
I've been using Fuji Neopan Acros 100 for years as an astrophotography film. Other than its lack of Ha sensitivity it is perhaps the best B&W film ever made for astrophotography.
It can be hypered for superior performance or just out of the box. I use it for impressive star field images. It is truly a film worth considering for B&W work. Better than Tech-Pan when it comes to blue-green and yellow-orange sensitivity when hypered.

now you have the cartridge holder for your camera. I wish to find free time soon. This is the major obstacle for me. That's why I tried to find a new owner for my camera. Any way, since I have the camera remounted and a good stock of fine grained films I will contact you as soon as possible for a Schmidt safari. I can help you further in the mounting of your camera.

If you are ever at a news stand look for the "Tenmon Guide" astronomical magazine.

Any thoughts on 120 color film for ISON. Red sensitive
film seems to be hard to find but for a comet that's not
Here is my camera....
