Phoenix 0.25x Super Fisheye

Hi Everyone,

Just bought a new toy and thought I would share the first attempts. The .25x fisheye attached to your filter threads and gives you a 180* view in a circular format. Beats the heck out of trying to shot down into a security mirror from a tripod.

This one was a short exposure pointed at the celestial pole. The lights near the bottom are headlights of a car. The scratch is from pulling the film out and manually rewinding it in a dark little outhouse. Turns out my old Yashica F1 no longer rewinds the film despite several minutes of winding.

Ok. I wasn't going to post this because I bumped the tripod during it, but my wife likes the star clouds.
