takumar-55.thumb.jpg.7a13e428d0c5baa23b78aa89f379a319.jpgHi everyone. Had a built-like-a-tank Takumar this weekend.

May even have caught a bit of the witch-head lower right (?).

Wanted to catch this before Betelgeuse exploded;)

Thanks for looking and clear skies. 

80 minutes @ ISO400

LOL. Yeah, a big advantage when imaging; you can read the newspaper whilst waiting for your exposures!

From someone old school from my days as a serious 35m photographer, I can vouch for old lenses,  and wouldnt hesitate in buying old lenses.  old soligors are worth looking into as well

If you still have some why not use those same don't bother with either a 80ED or 130PDS just get a mount for now
