I've just realized that the RT224 camera, by having a C mount, could take all sorts of security camera lenses. Several of those are meant for 1/3" sensors, some would allow wider fields allowing for example to fit Andromeda. Some are even zooms.
Of course, if I've learned anything from EAA is that nothing is so simple.
So perhaps more knowledgeable people like you could help me determine if any of these would work on an RT224 (matching spacing, reach focus, etc)
* This $20 "Yumiki" 6-60 F1.6 zoom looks like the RI2 zoom.
* This $9 25mm F1.4 (meant for 1/2.5" sensors) would offer 15°. Enough to fit a whole constellation
* This $35 manual focus, 5-to-100mm varifocal lens meant for 1/3" CMOS sensors would go from 28° to 2.8°. if it did focus it'd have potential
Can anyone check the specs on the links and tell me if any would work on an RT224 camera?
I've not seen any picture in the EAA forum taken with a wider field lens like these... Maybe there's something I don't know and I'm wasting my time?
