Scanning values

I’m using small sections (approx 3cm x 2cm) of found postcards for a new piece  of work. Trying to strike a balance between enlargement quality, mainting detail whilst avoiding moire by using a descreening filter.

Margate Sky 022

Margate Sky 022 scan, pre-retouch
Scanned on Epson Precision V750, 400% enlargement, 480 lpi the scan software (Silverfast Ai V6) has screen detection which suggests 188lpi screen in the originals.
