That's interesting. Using a 300 watt bulb at 36 inches, with my fresh Azo,
I get those same times. With my 1969 Azo, same bulb same distance, it's so
much faster. 6- 10 seconds.

I was told, Azo ages well and gets faster with age. Edward Weston used Azo
under a 75 watt bulb at 36 inches with those times, too. Maybe the
manufacture HAS changed. But I doubt that.
