Cosmos Through Carl Zeiss Jena 135mm (Red MC)

I spotted the recommendation * for this version of this lens and bought a copy. "Red MC" means that the multicoating is indicated by "MC" in red letters on the front of the lens barrel. My version has an M42 mount, so I can use it on any camera via an adapter.

At first I thought I had bought a dud. However, I had not fully compensated for the frequent air movement. This is the only shot from two sessions which dispelled my doubts. This is at closest focus, uncropped at f8. On m4/3 the FOV is ca 95mm wide at this setting.
