    Re: Velostigmat Series II; Info and Images

    Thank you Mark. From your wonderful posting I ventured to take my 12 inch Velostigmat II apart and remove the tiny screw that restricts the number of rotations for the outer ring - allowing for more control of the level of soft focus. It was a little dicey taking out the retainer ring as it stuck a bit. I should have covered the lens with tape. I didn't scratch the lens but I did scratch the retaining ring with the spanner wrench. My lens is about 1928 in a Betax #5 shutter.

    Thank you for bumping this. I have a new appreciation for it, but had not fully read all the responses 'til now.

    I have the Ilex Paragon version of the Series II, it's a 12-inch lens with adjustable diffusion.
    Removing the limiting screw on that lens is easier than described for the Wollensak lenses. On the Ilex, the screw is in the barrel, just below where the lens sits.
    So the whole front lens assembly is removed (unscrewed), the screw is taken out and that's it.

    A word of warning: this also removes the limit of rotating the front element the other way past zero, and over-tightening can jam the front element, making it very difficult to unscrew at all.
    Hello Mark. I wonder how much in mm the front lens can be moved ? Thank you.
