    Ya all must be tiring of this project, I appreciate all the help and thanks again DrTang for the lens it works great.
    I forgot to mention the specs of the last two pictures, the subject was 3-4 feet in front of the lens with a sheet behind.
    A lamp with a 60 watt bulb sat on top of the camera as a light source.
    The exposure was 20 seconds on the negative using the lens, full open aperture.
    Contact printing was used on the picture using the back door in the camera as the shutter and was as fast as I could open and close the door.
    Wrote that all down for reference indoor shooting, all will change when outdoor pictures are taken.
    May post more pictures if we get it outdoors.
    Thanks.

    I in a way feel just like the early inventers in a way but it also is the hard way all the way especially when ya don`t have a mathematical bone in your body.
    Here`s an example of a hot air engine I built from sctratch with only a picture.

    That's a pretty slick engine!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Thanks John, I built five hot air engines but this is the only one I have left.

    long time to sit still!
