Fujifilm X-T2, Centon 500mm f/8 Mirror Lens, 1/500s, f8, ISO 1600
I spent a fun hour last night photographing the moon (and giving a phone tutorial to Rachel on the same thing…)
I’d found a cheap 500mm mirror lens in the cupboard and with the aid of a T2 mount and a Nikon-Fuji adapter managed to mount it on my X-T2 giving me the equivalent of a 750mm lens.
This lens seems to be able to focus beyond infinity though and I had trouble getting a correctly focussed image… this one is the best out of the 59 shots I took!
Olympus OM20, Zuiko Auto-S 50mm f/1.8 – 1/125s, f8, – Rollei RPX 100
I’m posting this image of Alport Heights for my regular ‘Photography Friday’ partner in crime, Rachel… thanks to the lockdown here in the UK we’ve not been out snapping for a while but this is one of her favourite places (and a fantastic spot for a picnic… when we’re allowed out again that is.)
Incidentally it was taken with an Olympus OM20 that she’d found for me in a charity shop a few months previously!
