  7. Possibly not long enough. What does the histogram look like?
  8. No bad thing at all!
  9. That female socket is a VGA connection, not a serial one. I *think* you can do it with a USB-Serial lead but I've not done one in a very long time so may be talking out of my hat!

  14. Focus knob rubbers now sourced and en-route to me!
  15. Type faster Daz!!!
