    Re: Lens length preferences in 7x17 format?

    The two easiest-to-find and high quality lenses is modern shutters in the FL that you mentioned are the 355mm G Claron and the 450mm Nikkor.

    Both are amazing lenses with more coverage that your...

    Re: Why no 180mm's for 8x10?

    And it was rebutted with examples of cheap (relatively) lenses of circa 180mm or less lenses.

    Unfortunately, while your contention can be a factor, it is not a singular, all-compelling contention.

    Re: Why no 180mm's for 8x10?

    Yeah, but the Schneider 120mm SA also covers (just/arguably) and is a relatively cheap lens. The Nikkor 120mm, whilst more expensive, certainly covers, yet is significantly cheaper than the 165mm SA....

  16. Re: Schneider Kreuznach Super Angulon MC XL 5,6/58

    If I was in your place, I’d get the72mm SAXL.

    Much bigger IC and far easier to use.

  17. Re: Schneider Kreuznach Super Angulon MC XL 5,6/58

    Super wides = super vignetting.

    20 minute subs with reticule alignment. Sorry; I don’t believe that is possible.

    A 5 minute sub with tracking is tough enough with digital wide field, let alone 20 minutes unguided.

    A 36+ meg digital will outperform 6x9cm anyway, so why bother?

    Not if you mount lenses directly onto the Sinar shutter. They’re not designed to be weight bearing.
