    Ha, that is a bulky lens, but one thing that led me (halfway) down the path was that the 610/9 still isn't quite as heavy as the Nikon 600mm tele.

    Vaughn--your times are interesting: with FP4+ I'm almost always having to deal with reciprocity and exposures between 30 seconds and three minutes. (Your canopy might be high, but I guess mine is thick.)

    Otherwise, thanks for all the replies. One more question, what would be the process for fitting an RDA into a Sinar board assuming I don't have an universal iris clamp? I'm thinking SK Grimes might be the place to start, but any tips appreciated.

    CB, out of curiosity I did a search for RD Artars' weights, found this: https://www.largeformatphotography.i...p/t-82143.html. It gives a weight of 41 oz for the 24 incher. Could be for a lens in a brass barrel.

    My Nikon catalogs say that the 600/9 (tessar type) and 610/9 (dialyte type) Apo-Nkkors weigh, respectively, 775 and 1,450 g. FWIW, my 610/9 A-N is in an aluminum barrel and weighs 1,377 g.

    Those times were for out in the sun and trying to use a shutter-less lens.-- in the redwoods it is several minutes plus.

    Thanks for the info--I think you're right about yours being a brass construction, though in the cosmic scheme of things folks use those plasmats-as-big-as-your-head in-shutter and seem no worse for wear. Otherwise, that's an interesting data point about the relative sizes of the APO-Nikkors, though I've not seen a 600mm listed.

    exposed in a Tachihara 810HD triple extension field view camera fitted with an Apo-Nikkor 610mm f9 lens working at f128.

    Why f128? So I could give a 2 second exposure via lens cap. Can't do faster with any accuracy.

    Excellent, the Nikkor is certainly handling the busy background at that aperture at least.
