You seem like you've been in the game longer, so I figured you'd have some
pretty spatial filters / beam splitters / suchlike. If not, we should have
a utility-construction night! I have lenses, but haven't mounted them yet.

As I said, I'm using Litiholo now, but back when I had access to a lab, we
used the Russian silver halide plates with D-19. That stuff has to be
disposed of at a hazmat center; you can't put it down a sink. So I'm happy
to avoid that expense and hassle!

However, I wouldn't mind going back to a method with better resolution.
These are a bit grainy :/
