Get a clear filter, paste an opaque circle to the middle of it, mount it on a telephoto, and shoot. The mirror lens obstruction is at that same place right up front.

Good tip. I'm experimenting with circle sizes and aperture settings on my 70-200 lens now. Like you said, the end result is different from a mirror lens because the color/contrast/sharpness of the lens is so much higher.

Next step: cut outs to create shaped bokeh!
