Not sure if this is off topic or not, but I'll test the waters.  I recently developed some negatives in pyrocat-HD and I am attempting to scan them in with a Minolta Dimage Scan Multi II using Vuescan.  I will admit up that I am at the bottom of the learning curve.  My scans come out extremely grainy.  If I look at them through a grain focuser I do not see the grain.  How can I over come this issue?  Is there any books or other guides that can help me along?

Thanks for your time
