You have a lot going on there.  tongue

I put that adapter in a safe place, never to be seen again.

Re: Printing-Nikkor 150mm

I have been trying out a version of this rig on full frame, with my Sony Alpha A7R.

Using Olympus OM 65-116mm telescope tubes and a x2TC,, I find the following.

Without the TC and with one tube, the FOV is from 44-90mm. with a second tube it goes down to 24mm. The TC halves those values, giving a scope of 90mm down to 12mm.

There is slight vignetting at f11 at the higher magnification end. I have been unable to reproduce the severe vignetting I got with a shot of an orchid in one of my first macros on Full Frame, before I had a long delay due to lack of the correct battery charger.
