I,ll settle for the moon buddy.
The film is unbelievable but there are little spots(you don,t see them in
the jpeg,s) in the base that take hours to clear .
Kodak states that these are easy to remove with a diffusion enlarger without
a loss of detail but have not figured out how to do it quickly in PS .

I have many more cloud shots of last trip.The ones i took over Iraq are
disappointing only the fractal i found a bit nice.
My bird is the only biggie with curved winshields ;at some angles worse then

with my nieces family.
