That looks like a Minolta MC/MD manual focus lens mount.

Can you provide some info on the rest of the lens?

MC could mean Multi-Coated, meaning lens coatings, rather than mount type. It doesn't look like my Minolta MC, or my Pentax K. Very often, the maker will indicate the mount type on the objective lens hold down ring, along with filter size, focal length and aperture. A photo of that end of the lens might help.

To my knowledge, Sirius was a marketing organization and did not manufacture any of the lenses sold under that name. I believe that Cosina actually made the lenses.

In any event, the optics on that lens may not be worth the cost of buying an adapter.
