This is the second iteration of the adapter to hold Nikon 35mm camera lenses on the Pictor camera. I made it from an old Nikon M2 lens extender to be able to use the bayonet and mounting. I then inserted a T-threaded tube into it to attach to the camera. After testing to get the right distance, they were bolted together at the best location to have the lens focus on infinity when the image was focused on the CCD chip. It worked well, but it required a set of RGB filters to be manually attached to the front of the lens to take color images. It worked well, but was a bit difficult. Now see the final here.
