No, the Baader is definitely staying. I just had the Stowaway to hand.

How about 60 year old Takahashi glass with writing on the flint's edge:

 

Swift 838 S15.jpg Swift 838 V15.jpg

 

The lens is from my Swift Model 838, a 50mm F14 achromatic, that is visually APO -- no false color.  Before I got my FC-50, this was my reference lens for my DPAC rig -- as close to perfect pattern as I'd seen, until my FC-50 (& Vixen FL80S).  So, I have many more DPAC pix from the 838 than any other lens...
