I am interested in getting one of these jobs done to the lens ... LensCoat® Pentax SMC 1000mm F8.0, LensCoat ..... thats a different lens of course. I'm pretty stupid because I should have sent the lens for a CLA and a lens coat BEFORE it came over here. Duh ! yeah call me dopey! I just never thought of that while it was still in the USA.
I have the K 1000/8 aka "Hubble Jr", which like yours is all black, making it very hot in the Florida sun. It was simple to order some 1/16" strechty closed cell foam sheet and cut my own lens coat with a lil bit of stitching. I went with lime green picture here in the wild!



The support is an older Bogen 3068 which has a 40lb capacity I think. The lens "only" weighs about 15lbs, so very solid. The tripod also weighs about 15lbs with the head. I'm actually able to stuff it all inside a sea kayak to take to remote locations.

Hope you get some great shots with your "James Webb telescope jr" !
