Finally have a nice setup going for the 800mm lens!
· Had to drill and fit an end-stop screw to the T2-F-mount adapter
· Got a lens-hood (105mm ⌀ !)
· Also a circular polarized filter to try out
· A lens mount for the tripod (had to file it down to accommodate the large diameter)
Now I can balance the setup in its center of gravity to reduce vibration and eliminate droop. The hood should improve quality a lot according to people.
Time for some tests and #birbposting ! 😎
@tbr space, as seen from earth!
@av500 Yeah getting mooned, close up and personal and taking photographic evidence is also on the list! 😄
@tbr Reminds me to get the Canon 500 mm mirror out of the box and onto a tripod and check on the neighbours ;)
