Thank you kindly, it's a very simple homemade setup posted a number of years ago by member "Rense", here is a picture of it:



I made different lengths, use depends on whether I just use the lens or add different length of extension tubes.

Super series Heinrich.... it's amazing how when recovering from hip surgery, all the sudden your back yard becomes a place of huge interest, and how much you can actually find there.
