Imaging with the Samyang 135mm f2

Recommended Posts

Bunnies on the lens front surface will be so out of focus you won't see evidence of them on the flats.

I use this fine focuser, it’s very helpful, if not a bit fiddly to put on.

Edit

just noticed he does a hinged ring version which looks better

Has anyone bought the hinged version for the Samyang 135mm? If so what size did you get?

Yes, and it was not a good quality. The rings didn't close properly, and couldn't hold my lens.

I went with the one from Astrojolo.com, definitely better quality printing, and cheaper too :)

The one that goes around the focus ring with the little tab sticking up?

This is very nice thread, i liked the results here from this lens.

Unfortunetly i have 135mm lens but from Canon itself, not Samyang or Rokinon, and i keep trying to find a suitable ring to attach for this lens and then mount it, i did buy that ZWO adapter ring they have for ASI1600mm which is 78mm i think, i tried that ring on my QHY163M and it wasn't tight enough, need like 1mm less, something like 77mm i think will be fine, or even 76mm and it will tight it perfectly, with an adapter on camera i can mount any Canon lens then, while if i go with lens then i will need many adapter rings at different sizes, so hopefully i can find something for 135mm Canon lens or QHY163M camera[76-77mm].
