That is a very excellent capture. Well done.

How did you attach the lens to the camera? Did you make an adapter? I would like to do the same type of imaging with my Canon lenses.

Cheers,

Thanks for comment.

Surprisingly M42x1 lens fits absolutely into camera thread (at least mine) for the whole lenght of the thread. But I could not reach infinity so I placed manual filterwheel between camera and lens. I have lacerta manual filterwheel. Now manual lens M42x1 thread does not fit totally into filterwhell thread but It goes to the half way (2 revolutions at least) si I think it will not fall out...

If you have MC camera, I would use M42x1 macro circle (circles) to reach infinity - this should work perfectly - as I mentioned at the start, M42x1 lens goes through the whole camera thread. Interesting, maybe camera thread is somewhere about M42x0,85 - fits both into T2 and to tohe M42x1.

I am looking for your photos!
