Bausch & Lomb Optical Co. Aero Ektar 24inch f:6 astrocamera


Bausch & Lomb Optical Co. Aero Ektar 24inch (600mm) f:6 astrocamera

The Aero-Ektars are lenses for aerial reconnaissance photography made by Kodak. Most were made for War World II. For their time, the Aero-Ektars were very advanced technology with a new optical design and use of the latest optical cement, coatings and high-tech optical glasses.

Even by today's standards, these lenses are exceptionally fast for the size negatives they were designed to cover.

The Aer-Tessar is professionally mounted on an orange Celestron tube.  Aero-Ektar is part of an astrocamera to be used with a Hasselblad 6x6 film back. 

The astrocamera can easily be transformed into a wide field refractor. Makes a fine 4" refractor.

Bausch & Lomb 24 inch (600mm) f:6 Aero-Ektar lens SN MA1402 R
