Excelent, Lee!!

Is that a screw mount 300mm Pentax lens?

Do you use a commercial adaptor?

This image turned out fantastic!! Really like it!

Yes, Bruce. It was the M42 screw-mount Pentax SMC 300/4 lens on a commercial M42 to 4/3 adapter. One of my pictures posted here recently ( was also taken with this lens. It is a good lens although it has some CA problems.
Best regards,
