Old Gold – Fast Glass
Here you see a rare piece of fast Nikkor glass. It is the early Manual focus version of today’s fast VR AF version. But I will say this . . . Fast Glass never grows old, it is just re-purposed . . . and as you can see here it is mounted on Star Adventurer astro mount. I am testing it for deep space imaging and will write up an overview of this lens and how it preforms in this roll in another article . . . . we’ll be using a Nikon D7000 to capture the ancient photons it’s heavy but the Star Adventurer should be able to handle it. Want specs and info about the Nikkor 200mm f/2 AIs the click this link Nikkor 200mm F/2
Here’s my Nikkor 70~200 f/2.8 VR lens
Here is the same mount with another fast piece of glass, the Nikkor 70~200mm f/2.8 VR zoom.
Postings will follow later on.
Catch ya later . . I’m off catching photons.
Just a teaser guys
