I really liked my 640nm Longpass (Lumicon Ha filter) with the 50mm Canon F/1.8 lens (nifty fifty), but liked it better in my biocular where I know the aperture is split with beam splitter and makes f ratio longer and gives more magnification, so I thought this 135mm would be great for some wide shots still while providing more mag than my 50mm.
Vivitar 135mm has 52mm threads and I have the step down ring to mount my 2" filters. Both 3nm Ha and 640nm or 610nm. Milky Way viewing with these low power lenses and Longpass filters is a treat and worth admission price.

I'll be in dark skies in 3 days with all my IIE stuff and two scopes. Bought Pelican cases for all IIE gear. I'm really looking forward to clear dark skies and that 135mm lens with filters.
Highly recommend a 135mm lens for handheld use or tripod mount. Handheld with PVS-7 was like a supercharged 10x50 on steroids! Incredible view. Can't wait for winter and Barnards Loop now.
