Thank you! Noted :)

I have also learned the CRC and IF can for some optical designs change the Nodal' point as you focus the lens,,, For some lenses this change is huge,,, even for fixed focal length lenses,,,

Please start a new thread with images, if they are allowed for by client.

eric - what did you use to cut the hood? I have to say it is genius. I figured it could be very possible since the way the cap worked and I was surprised nikon didn't offer one. I would think the way the cap works would also make a filter holder very possible.
I saw a filter holder from NISI on ebay and I wonder if it uses the same mount as the cap.

I actually had this lens for a few weeks but returned it. I was hoping the price would drop or some type of sale on it after the winter, but I also was a little put off by the flaring. Do you think the hood helps a little with the flare? I was getting flare with nights shots from light sources behind the camera.

I am getting the itch to buy this lens again and the hood was something I really wanted. Thanks!

Did you cover up your eyepiece?

Yes I had the eyepiece covered. I actually did some test shooting and the lens picks up light in odd ways. It could really use a proper hood.

I cut it with a Dremel or Proxxon Diamond disc :)

Beautiful shot, Bob.  I guess the 19mm works well with IR.
