I'm 95% certain this lens was used for medical purposes. No focus, no aperature.

Still an interesting find though. Perhaps you could simply hold a camera behind the back element and take a few pictures?

Edit: It's a projection lens used in cinemas... not likely to be very usable for photography.

I know a similar lens which was specifically made for Aurora Borealis research a few decades ago.
