APO Modular Telyt-R questions

Hi All,

 

I am soon set to receive a Modular Telyt-R but it comes without a manual. I would love to get an electronic one, or buy a paper manual; but am really interested on the instructions on how to join the head to the focusing module. I believe it should be easy, but don't want to mess it up when I get it.

 

A second topic is a Series 6 filter. I am wondering what people think about the polarizer and if it is worth trying to buy one.

 

Thanks,

 

Jeremy

A polarizer is always good to have. There is a series 6 for sale on the auction site of Quality Camera. If you really want one, get it soon as Leica no longer supplies one.

I downloaded the manual. Thanks for the link!

 

I have found a used Series 6 polarizer, but now I am wondering if it is just the filter, or if it will come with the holder that includes the wheel to rotate it internally. I will have to look into it.

 

Thanks again,

 

Jeremy

A couple of tricks:

 

- before attempting the mating, make sure the head's rotating bayonet thing is 'armed' by turning it counter-clockwise.

- reference your fingers between the two halves when docking, to avoid bumps.

- once docked (with the auto bayonet spinning) give the spinny thing an extra gentle turn by hand to ensure the halves don't separate unexpectadly. This happened to a number of new users, hence the red warning stickers on later large heads.

- consider using the uniform ground glass screen (with or without grids) with the f5.6 module. The microprisms of other screens don't work well at f5.6.
