You understand me...the only critical temp/time is the
developer.  Everything else will remain relatively constant
(enough not to shock the film as I was taught not to do).  I
develop in a winter environment that  is about 50 degrees F.
So I figure that the everything will cool down a couple of
degrees. not color.

Off this topic, for thirty years, I have loaded the reels in
a changing bag...the only problem I ever have is trying to
load reels in a real darkroom.  I can't find anything!!!
