    Advancing explorations into the past - Voigtländer Vitessa!

The lens were tested in the 1950th by journalist in UK and USA and I read that some of them were sad that the Ultron were never reagular sold for...

    Emil Busch Rathenow Bis-Telar 7/550mm @f/22 (made in 1919) Maybe the longest focus length of the Bis-Telar. I don´t found any further information and I never saw this lens a second time.

    DIY made Struss Pictoral Lens

    With a pinhole you have much longer exposure times, not really an alternate. The transmitted wave lengths are not the only thing, a real softfocus lens gives a different kind of images. Pinhole photagraphy is nice but nothing more for me.

It were available with normal glass lens and with quartz glass as well. It has only one single glass element and an aperture in front of it. For using...
