The local camera store has a spotmatic era slide attachment, for copying slides, mint and in the box with instructions. It hooks into the rail of the bellows unit. I didn't buy it as I lack bellows, but seeing this photo makes me want some.

And AWESOME, you sure got the macro rig working fast... I like that TAX though it reminds me of what's coming next in the yearly round...

Peter, those look real good! What did you using for lighting on the bank note?

Hi Steve

This may sound a little odd but i used a SAD light. You know, the bright lights used for seasonal affective disorder. It was just sitting around and i remembered it simulates natural daylight.

Im really happy with the results and plan to experiment with the light source further.
