    Ongarine, I look forward to seeing some images made with your lenses. It's odd that the waterhouse stop is near the front, is this to better correct a single element in the rear. I always thought the optimum place for a stop was in the middle of two elements. Any ideas?

    Pardon me.
    They are slightly biconvex, very light weight.
    The place of the stops, very near of the front lens could also be used with a single lens in the back for portrait, as in the Bausch & Lomb Plastigmat Portrait, even if I doubt this casket set was for portraiture.
    It seems to be used for very small format, maximum 9x12 centimeters.

    Well - here's one more.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...EOIBSA:US:1123

    I'll see what it's good for when I get it.

    BTW - the same seller has one of those iris lens mounts. I wonder what it will end up at - at the moment there's 5 hours left to go, and it's already way above what any of mine have cost (included camera excluded)!

    That's fine, ongarine.

    The website setup has hit an unexpected snag - I no longer have the email address I used when I registered it. So there's plenty of time, it seems! But keep the info coming, and we'll share a bottle of Amarone one day. Or maybe I Capitelli?

    BTW, that iris lens mount went for $511. I may have to sell one of mine soon, with this kind of prices someone might start making them again!

    Ole, the same buyer paid $405 a week ago for another lens iris. Just a month ago they were going for $250. With these kind of prices I guess I lost my chance. I hope someone does begin making them and at a fair price.

    The prices one person is paying for the adjustable iris lens holders reminds me of the time when the Hunt brothers tried to corner the silver market and drove teh rice of silver from about $4 to almost $40 before they lost a huge amount.
    Hopefully similar will happen to the current over bidder.

    Yes, Seth usually has one or two. And information on some of them. He's a very helpful person, I've found!

    A little bit too optimistic about casket set performances
    Here another example of casket set with special qualities.
    Not an Aplanat or rectilinear but an anastigmat with a French design of lenses, that means somenthing particular. French designers always made some littlle or huge change in exixting optic configuration.
    This is Hermagis Trousse Aplanastigmatique n.5 and it consist of: 2 cells n. 5a, 1 cell n.6, 1 cell n.7
    The focal lenghts are: No7=40 cm. (16in), No6=52cm. (20.5in), and No5a= 60cm (24in.) These are symmetrical anastigmats, 3+3 type and possibly Dagor or Collinear types
    Maximum combined set of cells is 31 cm (12in), the apertures are both in millimeters and in "modern" aperture starting from f6,8 to 40.
    Coverage is around 70 degrees wide open and 85/90 degrees stopped down similar to the Collinear, so a little bit less than some Dagors.
    Single cells cover around 60 open and around 70/75 close.
    Tested they are mellow wide open and increasing stops they became sharper when in combinations, single cells are very interesting for portaiture until for most of the apertures, after f 32 they became sharp.
    I have also the Trousse Aplanastigmatique n.7 with 2x No7, plus one each of No 8 and 9 for foci from 12 cm (4.75in) combined to 40 cm. (16in.) single cell, usefull for 4x5.
    For the N.5 I have bought two of them to have one complete and in good order, but this happened often with casket sets because during years some components were losted or missed in action.
    So for all the owner of Busch's Unicum Aplanatsatz casket sets model C or similar I have to complete this or another, take note and send me a PM.
