You could always try the old 4-chloronaphthol + peroxide method. It's 
less sensitive, but at least you dont have to use a darkroom or worry 
about exposure adjustments. Alternatively, if you have the money, you 
could purchase an imaging system and use your existing ECL system... 
that way, the machine will decide on the exposure for you.
