sorry no answers - moved to closeup forum.
I guess this was the wrong forum? - No stars in my thread.

For those who are tired of combining teleconverters: 500mm mirror Tele, orthoscopic ocular, F-adapter. A spotting scope would be better!

It started as a joke...
But a different setup gives some hope:

My new toy is a relict of those ancient SLR days. I started to test my 1,8/50mm pentacon lens as reversed lens (covered in the square-cokin sun shade). - Very good results up to now! But looking at the moon, I had to attach my beroflex 8/500mm in front of this lens. 500/50 = 10* Converter. The wide aperture of the reversed lens is essential for this setup. The exact distance of the two lenses has to be tested. Extension tubes and extenders can be used. All this is cheap material, but the tripod has to be extremely good! There is little purple fringing which can be removed easily.

You will need a remote release - in this case: pneumatic

This is my first test: FZ5 8x zoom, f:3.3 t:1/100 full frame

..click to enlarge!

here is more:


.. and these are the apollo missions:

I thought this could not be done with the small FZs????

A second example:
36mm (35mm equiv.)

420mm (35mm equiv.)

10000mm (35mm equiv.)

This power line is quite far away....
Atmospheric conditions are limiting!
