Bahtinov Mask for AT65 and/or DSLR Lens??
Posted 19 October 2013 - 12:52 PM
The only local ones I can find that are small enough to fit are ones similar to this one on adorama
Whereas on ebays UK site, I found one like this
The one on ebay looks like it has much finer spikes/lines on the mask than the one from adorama. Does this make a difference? Which one would be better for focusing my 65mm and DSLR lenses?
Since I'm unsure if I can make orders from ebays UK site I might be stuck going with the one from adorama unless any of you know of any different ones that would work for my needs. I just want to make sure I get something that works
Thanks in advance everybody

I have made ones for a AT72ed, 120ST, 6" mak-newt and 8"SCT. All came out working perfectly even if not the prettiest of things.

I've used both masks for a couple of years, and they have held up fine. I left little tabs on the outer edge that bend over the dew shields for attachment (rubber band).

The 2.5" to 4.5" mask fits my AT65EDQ and my Canon lenses very well and it is just hefty enough to stay in place if there is a breeze. I am all for inexpensive and DIY, but not when the manufactured unit works so much better and is very inexpensive to boot.
My 2 cents, YMMV.
