Legacy series, the Bellow-Cam

Relatively old stuff from my original web-page... 

The Bellow-Cam

A Simple Wide-Angle Camera

Guess what, I am lazy.... So, I tried to find as much "completed work" as possible. Resulting in a rather simple design. All parts can be easily found on fleamarkets or rallies... The basis of all are a photographic bellow, a Vesta pro and a couple of lenses (M42). Cardboard finished the first design, but just have a look...

Vesta-Cam using a 50mm f/1.8 lens (no long-exposure!)

M44 (Praesepe) recorded with the above setup, unguided camera on a simple tripod,
the bright spot on the lower left edge is Jupiter
