I am copying them using my digital camera but, as every slide I have
copied so far has shown some CA somewhere, I am not convinced that CA
was in the slide. So yes, the culprit must be in the hardware. A point
of interest - when the slide is rephotographed it is in the original
cardboard or plastic holder. The images include a small amount of the
frame which has a beautiful fringe all the way round on the inside
shading from green through to violet.
