Well, after about 2 months of waiting, I finally got a nice clear, dry night, and was able to take some exposures. Both exposures were approximately 30 minutes on hypered tech pan, which I left in the chamber just a little too long They were taken at the prime focus of my 6 inch refractor, and they are both scans of prints I made earlier today. Overall, I am pretty pleased with my results. I also have a widefield of gamma Cygni, but the bulb on my enlarger blew before I had a chance to print it! Also, I think I found the source of the uneven fogging. I found an old discussion online from 1997 where it was said that newer 150ft Tech Pan rolls don't respond perfectly to hypering, whereas film from the cassette responds fine. I guess I'll have to find an older roll, maybe from the 80s. I just saw one or two on eBay, so they are definitely still out there.

Clear Skies,
Noah
