Wow, that would be great. Would a camera with a Bowden cable trigger set up on a
tripod in a darkened room be sufficient for imaging the fiche reader screen? I know
it wouldn't be Bitsavers quality but any doc is better than no doc.

Also I'm ok with the RKV11 being 16 bit, my Qbus CPUs only extend to an LSI-11/2
and 11/03 board with 4KW anyway.
