  or any specifically designated object or operation thereon.
    2. The notice or subpoena duces tecum shall specify  the  time,  which
  shall  be  not  less  than  twenty  days  after service of the notice or
  subpoena, and the place and manner of making the inspection, copy,  test
  or  photograph,  or of the entry upon the land or other property and, in
  the case of an inspection, copying, testing or photographing, shall  set
  forth  the  items  to  be  inspected,  copied, tested or photographed by
