    Re: Playing with Meniscus Lenses

    I found a meniscus lens on the road one day, scratched and chipped, ugly. Looks like it's from an overhead projector. What the heck, taped it to a Deardorff lens board and tried it out. This is Spanish Moss at Brazos Bend State Park, dark cloth for a shutter, and crazy amount of back tilt.

    Nice! Good subject, although if the car is yours, you should have closed the hood, if not, nothing else to be done but take the picture. '53 Buick. First year of the nailhead V8

    Not a true meniscus, per se, but a biconvex magnifying glass lens.
