    Odd old process lens

    I found an old brass-mounted 3 element process lens, 460mm f7.3 and mounted it in a jury-rigged telescope tube. It's not bad. Reasonable control of colour and fairly sharp. I have no idea who made it or when. The A/C duct was about 500ft from me. None of the lens surfaces is coated.

    What camera are you using, and what do you use for an adapter? How do you focus the lens?

    I'm using a G1, adapting the lens I use micro 4/3rds to 4/3rds adapter, an Olympus SLR adapter, a t-ring and a t-mount to 1-1/4" telescope adapter. The scope focusing using a rack and pinion focuser.
