Still trying to extract the best from the Olympus OM D EM1 and the vintage Towa 80mm F15 scope.

Last week I check collimated the scope after deciding it wasnt performing like it used to and it was a bit off, must have got knocked during house move. So tonight I wanted to give it a whirl.

Visual great, no sign of green or purple edges to high albedo areas indicative of the scope being either not cooled or out of line, so I slapped the Olly on and took 50 shots at ISO 200 at 1/200th.


Pipped and Registaxed and PS6 for final adjustment. Cos the scope was at the right temperature and in collimation I took the shot in colour and I'm please to se no fringing which is what a good long FL achro in collimation should give. I'm quite pleased to have the scope back on form again.

Happy Christmas Folks



Good stuff.


We need a little pair of red shoes.
