Another session with the Telesar 135mm 1:2.8 T-Mount Preset, a lens that I acquired a while back. Images shot wide open backlighted against the morning sun. The result? You have to be your own judge here, and at the others (with the same lens) that I have posted earlier, as I am still illiterate when it comes to doing the technical bits.

As for the lens itself, details of its origin, or manufacture, remain elusive as not much info on it is available on the Net, where it seems that there are more questions than answers...

Like all Pentax A-series lenses, this very fast standard lens supports P and Tv exposure modes in addition to Av and M. A great value for the money, it is small, light, and priced reasonably, Slightly soft at f1.4, good for creative art.

What a surprise find!.

I was not too sure what I got into when I placed the order for the low-priced offer T-mount 400mm F6.3, believed to be a Tokina RMC, as sold under the Photax name, and also available as an Astranar, Impakt, D&N, Prinz-Galaxy, and many others.

The 4 elements in a 3-groups dual-ring preset 'long-tube' telescope have their fair share of accolades, with most reviewers commenting on its sharpness, and with the fair amount of fungal infection, I found within the elements of the lens, a lower contrast threshold. Had the camera mounted via ita built-in tripod mount for these shots (800mm equivalent on the 2x crop sensor), taken wide-open (@ 6.3 of course), and the images post-processed.

Just a short hop, from one station to the other. Compared to my previous outing which was on A Sultry Morning, this one was on a gloriously bright and sunny day. The sun was out bright and sunny, the air was fresh and crisp, and after the morning rush, you were at the station almost by yourself.
