Not bad at all, although there seems to be some blurring at the edges (photographing a sheet of squared paper could show it).

It is said that a close-up lens should be as close to the camera lens as possible.

It has 2 pieces of glass 1 from a 2.5x magnify loaded in the front and2nd lens of unknown specsthat i disasembledand removed from anold 80's Sony Cam corder.

Its not finished yet because im still playing with the distance between the 2 glass's and the cam lens .
Great work, Pappy! Looks pretty finished from here. Going to be hard to duplicate without knowing what camcorder lens it was. When you find out, post the complete construction details. You're using the Raynox rt5264p adapter to hold it all together?

This setup is alot easier to use than my Raynox DCR250 . The sweet spot seems to be farther away from the target with better magnificationwhich is cool for lighting purposes .Ive zoomed up to 10 x's with this lens . I havent really measured the working distance yet but i will when im done .

thanks guys

Yes the PVC has been machined down on the inside to fit the Raynox adapter tightly but can be removed .Ive tryed to shake it off jar it but it stays in place by friction fit.

Ill post detailed steps when its completely finishedand i determine the lens specs.Thanks for your comments and support :|
