    what you have is a Series I Nr.6, 306 mm F3.16, made on 10.11.1897

  5. Re: Petzval / Dallmeyer (or other) antique lens for glowing SF HALO effects

    Miguel, the "glowing halo effect" depends also very much on lightning.
    another source you should study is http://tonopahpictures.0catch.com/ lots of great samples with different sf lenses.

    Re: Darlot Lens ID Help

    a 19" f4 Petzval lens is at least 2-3 times bigger than that, so this can't be.

    Re: Loose Lens - Can I just tighten it?

    it is as simple as just tightening it, don't worry. the spacing between the elements is critical, but your shutter (or barrel) takes care of that already.

    and yes, you're right, it will cover more at portrait distances. but it will still be too wide for a good portrait perspective on 8x10".

  36. Re: French Lens Conundrum - Photographic or Telescope?

    i agree, the diagrams in the book show simple lenses.
    now you only need to find that BIG Derogy lens :)
  37. Re: French Lens Conundrum - Photographic or Telescope?

    the "plus petit" of the lens in D'Agostinis book is 0.6 dioptres.
  38. Re: French Lens Conundrum - Photographic or Telescope?

    According to D'Agostini (p.344) the "plus petit" of a Derogy Foyers multiples is a positive achromatic doublet. Nothing about the "plus grande".
  39. Re: French Lens Conundrum - Photographic or Telescope?

    Another possibility would be that they are part of a larger "trousse" set. I've seen such with bayonet mount from Hermagis, but never from Derogy.
    What is sure imo is that it is a Derogy product....
