Dear all, I have two camera: qhy 178 mm and neptune ii camera (imx464 sensor).
Considering that the lens Arecont 1.55 seems not available, other than the omni present 2.55 lens Avalanche from e-shop of zwo and player one, do you suggest another quality lens for all sky?
I like to use during holidays, at home , for meteors showers, etc…?
Thank and regards

I have imx462 and imx183 and I have been thinking the same (especially for meteors) so I am following this topic.

Dear all,
Thanks for every suggestion.
I found a 1.55 f2 lens, that I understood it’s the right chiude to have 180 degrees.
I saw that the thread is S mount ( M12x0.5).
Someone, has idea how to find adapter for qhy and player one camera?
I think also exist other mount such as CS mount, but the problem I think the same.
Thank in advance
Best regards
