Cleaned my Nikon Coolscan LS-40 ED

Though scanning results improved i still din't get the sharpness i should and still negatives with results to cry about.
So after being hinted by a Lightcatch forum member i looked into cleaning my LS-40.
Today i did following the tutorial found here:
Cleaning Nikon Coolscan LS-40

It wasn't that difficult and really imroved the quality of the scan!
Though be cautious with the mirror...

Above 1 result, in an older post you can see the first try at that negative.

Grts Peter.

Scan results......

Above a negative scan from my visit to Middelburg where i bought my scanner.
This is on of the best scan results so far.
I am having problems with some negatives wich just don't give good scans.
Testing, trying and failing is the word.

Above is F90x + 50mm 1.8d on Kodak Color Gold 200.

Cool......a scanner ;)

Bought myself a nice piece of equipment for my analogue photography.

Very good price and runs on Windows7 64bit using Nikon Scan 4.03
