Today I finally got to capture the Red-breasted Nuthatch at the home location described above. Warm weather allowed for a little patience in waiting for it to show up again. It appears almost like clockwork at noon these days with a flock of Black-capped Chickadees. However none of the Chickadees ever uses the door of my outhouse as a perch.



Interestingly I noticed several cases in my images where it seemed to scoop through the snow with its beak wide open, possibly to catch bugs hidden in the snow.

I have a Componon 28 and a Componar 50 (both F4).  They're both reasonably sharp macro lenses.  The 50 works OK on a bellows, but the 28 gets to something in the 1:1 vicinity on a short mount. I can't quite remember where they came from, but I think the 28 was on a small Durst enlarger that turned up in a free pile (and that is now somewhere in the barn).  They both work pretty well as macro lenses, and they're very nicely made.

The short mount is part of some broken zoom lens and part of a broken movie camera. Of course it doesn't focus but it's so light that it's pretty easy to hand hold and just move in and out.

At the end, I got a chance to take the Mini Wide for a ride for some real world pictures :)

Mine is here
Probably is the same in different metal mount
It’s a flat field with good sharpness on center and corners that’s the reason I adapted on my enlarger a Krokus 6x6 but only for 35mm film
I also used as a macro lens with bellows, it was the time that with one lens we could cover almost everything 8)

Thanks Nasos. The map in this link, , could indicate that the Mars occultation it can be seen from part of Europe too, perhaps at twilight in the morning, but I always consult Stellarium to get specifics and timing for my location at such events. Alaska is so far north that Mars only will be grazing the moon, but close enough that it should still be quite spectacular if weather would cooperate.

The EL-Industar 50/3.5 seems more expensive than a EL-Nikkor 50/2.8?

Is it the one on picture you have?
Looks quite special.
