Those are some nice views. I like the gradient removal. More like my eyepiece view with narrowband filter.

I must admit these with a little processing look extremely cool, so well done I enjoyed looking at them.

Looks like a great size lens. I just bought a used Vivitar 135mm F/2.8 with Pentax K mount on eBay for cheap. Excellent condition. Bought a Pentax K mount to C-mount adapter cheap too.

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 find http://en.m.wikipedi...g/wiki/Blu-Tack is useful to hold filters in place and in filter rings sometimes, duct tape is also useful!
I have a 135f2.8, hoping for something faster, but then a 50mm filter won't fit on the front!!

Cheers

Highfnum - absolutely great info. My vivitar lens came in with Pentax K mount to c-mount adapter. I hooked it to my PVS-7 for the most outstanding binocular view of NAN in context. 3nm Ha filter on the end of it.

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.

Yes, the vivitar is both cheap and good! Adapter cost me as much as the lens.
