All this talk of planets in alignment so I dug out the Pentax SMC Tak 300mm 1:4 and realised I haven`t got a tripod mount/lens collar for it !!
Any out there or any ideas for suitable after market rings ?

You need to measure the diameter where the mount will go and
see if it's the same as any of the cheap Chinese Canon copies

It's easier to wrap a piece of 10mm wide paper around the lens
and mark the circumference, measue it and the work out the diam
from that

i.e. divide the circumference by 3.14159 to get the diam.

Thanks Algi - I`ll have a go - it`s actually got a splined location on the lens barrel so I`m open to any suggestions - cheap damaged one on ebay would be nice !!
