Sun & Tele-Tak 300mm f6.3

Getting ready to take some photos of the eclipse. I'm NOT traveling anywhere, but just going into my yard at my house here in Rolla. The effect will be plenty good here to enjoy it. Here is my first test shot - Pentax K5, Tele-Takumar 300mm f6.3 lens, stacked on a 2x teleconverter for 600mm, lens stopped down to f22, with a stack of filters fitted to the front: two 4x ND, one 2x ND, one circular polarizer, one linear polarizer. This is just what I had, and it works! ISO80, 1/8000 sec., handheld. Notice the sun spots clearly visible across the face of the sun.

UPDATE: Lesson learned - CHECK YOUR SENSOR! The "sunspot" in the lower-right quadrant is a dust particle on my sensor. After cleaning my sensor, it's all good now. Here is a new image with a clean sensor, this time in color (daylight white balance).

Auto Takumar 55mm f2.2 lens with #3 extender

I bought a mint set of Takumar M42 extension tubes from Keh some years ago in a nice leather case for $15 and am just getting around to using them.
"The Mysterious Topography of a Stone" taken with the Sony a7, converter, #3 extension tube and Auto-Takumar 55mm f2.2 lens at f11, hand-held. Cropped a bit.
I like stones, always have. The stones used in the condominium's pool filtration system are gradually being transferred to my apartment. If I get raided, I'm in trouble.

Occluded Sun

Here is another photograph taken with my Tele-Takumar 300mm f6.3 @ f22 on a 2x teleconverter, stacked with several filters to attenuate the sun: two 4x ND, one 2x ND, one circular polarizer, one linear polarizer, mounted on a K5 on a tripod, 1/8000 sec, ISO80, daylight white balance. A small cloud was approaching the sun, so I quickly positioned myself to take some photographs during its passage, and here is one of the shots. It gives it a dirty, eerie appearance.

So, about the preset setting.... forgot to check it when using an adapter, and as a result took a bunch of photos wide open. 50mm Macro-Takumar (Fuji X-T20):

Her technique is a little rough, but she is getting there just the same! Great shot.

Small fuzzy visitor, who discovered the bag of birdseed we left on our front porch. Taken with Spotmatic F and Super-Multi-Coated Macro Takumar 50/4.0



Is he, or is he not, the Spiderman of squirrels?

Still digging about in my old photo archive - finally approaching the problem of processing them. The first is from the May Bank Holiday in a tube station in London. The second is the same day at Waterloo Station, London, where the train to France terminates.


Both were with K-3 with STak 24/3.5.

Auto Takumar 55mm f2.2

Photo taken at f9, converted in Nik Silver Efex Pro and toned. "Monsoon Season". There's been significant rainfall and flooding in the north for the past month or so, but Bangkok's been spared so far. We're told that's about to change. . .
