    I have a Fluro Ektar and learned that it used as car parts roentgen machines phosphor glowing plate taking lens.
    It is only corrected to green.

    What kind of a photograph does it take , what about the colors , sharpness ?
    Does it take like Aero Ektar or faraway different strange colors and non sharp pictures ?

    How only green corrected lenses takes pictures ?

    Have you done nothing with this lens since you last started a thread about it here on APUG?

    No , nothing , it comes and goes , but your answer was inspired me to do something now .
    But I will wait more detailed answer , insight also. I last built a box from paper and put a thin paper back and tried the lens , it was sharp and good. But I got green corrected information and I stopped.
