Hi all, I've posted some "first light" photos taken with my new (to me) Traveler here:

What a superb lens! I'll be busy for a few weeks preparing my astrophotography set-up (I use a FLI camera, wheel and PDF focuser that I can switch quite simply as one connected unit between my TEC 140, Pentax 67 lenses and my new AP telescope. I'll let you know when I have some astro-subjects to post.
