This was the first test of my "new" Asahi Pentax Takumar, a lens produced in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It was supposed to be a test only and never meant to be published here. Given the age of the lens it came to my mind to process the image to a vintage sepia look. It was a fellow astronomer's very positive feedback that finally convinced me to present it here.
