I just sold my Q and shipped it today. When my new one comes in I will let you know for sure, but I am hoping my 200M is going to do the job. Give me a buzz in about a week and I can let you know for sure.

Here's what you can get with a 200 mm. Shot with a Q7 + Tele-Takumar 200 mm f/5.6 + Fotodiox M42-to-Q adapter.

Maybe my 300 Takumar will be better.

That moon shot through the telescope is pretty sweet, I bought a T ring adapter so I can attach my Q to my telescope one of these nights that it is not below freezing and cloudy outside!
