Hi everybody!

I use an epson 1640xl for the lp scanning. The cover fits almost on 
there. Another option is the agfa duoscan t2000xl which can be had 
refurbished from these guys in Canada:
http://www.vector1digital.com/products.html
They are the factory authorized repair shop for agfa scanners in 
North America. I am not a 100% sure but i think a refurbished one 
from them was around 1500 dollars US, but that might be outdated now. 
They used to be around 8000 dollars new. They work with windows xp 
and need to be hooked up with a scsi cable. Silverfast makes a plugin 
for photoshop.
I never had problems stitching together two scans in Photoshop or 
Photoshop Elements when no color correction had been done prior to the scan.
