    Mine is bigger and covers the sensor with room to spare.

    But I bet you get out of focus doughnuts for bokeh

    Use a fresnel and a ttl flash, gets rid of the donuts.

    Love me some donuts! Donuts with 6 sided spikes even!

    Pretty sure it's tough to get a flash unit that reaches his intended subject matter

    14 megatons is just about right ... one time use only.

    One additional caveat: zero opportunity to clean up the image in post-processing

    If dudes in helicopters are taking pictures of Saturn I get to keep my claim until proof positive is presented. If you don't like it I'm not sharing my spiky donuts with you.

    I'll grant you that. Yours is the largest I have seen (and it's certainly bigger than the largest lens I've mounted on my camera).

    I didn't know this thread was going to devolve into this sort of contest...and I also didn't realize that donuts were going to be at stake. :tongue:

    It's not physically as big, but my terrestrial scope, would beat it for reach. It claims to be a 1000-4000mm equivalent when mounted on a 35mm camera. I must try it on ยต4/3 sometime, zoomed out it works moderately well on APS-C but suffers severely from diffraction before reaching 4000mm (f/64).
    The biggest problem is the weight of the tripod it needs to hold it steady.

    Uh oh, the "mirror" secret is out!

    Flipped? All is made correct in post. Evidently two mirrors don't make a right.

    Never has bothered me while observing. Moving the scope in the appropriate direction takes a little getting used to though....

    Now I really wish I had kept that junky telescope I was given once. but then I did get rid of it because I couldn't get eye pieces for it, so I tried converting it to a more common format, and then could never get it to focus.

    just a hint for any cat lens. obviously not for stars, would defeat the purpose. big fresnal and a veeeery slow shutter maybe
