[UV] Old Achromatic Quartz Fluorite Lens for Ultraviolet Photography (II)

I had mentione before, that I had taken apart some older equipment, as it had some quartz fluorite optics in it. Here now more pictures using it, all closeup shots were done at approx. f11.

Not that bad, especially since it has a very small focus shift of only about 1/2mm when shooting macro. I am no having a professional mount made for it.

That Gazania flower I had shot earlier here, which may serve as a comparison.


Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
