Sigma Telemax 2.8/135 Macro focussing (I also had the Sigma XS 4/200 Macro Focussing)

This is a sample:

I have one of those, in Minolta mount. Picked it up dirty, but otherwise in fine shape, with hood and original cap, for something like $5, or maybe $2, at a photo swap meet a couple of years ago. The Minolta mount is with a weird SUN YS/MC thing.

Congrats, now you can explore the glow by using the macro focussing feature to enhance glow :-). 
I don't know much about the Sigma YS System, but I think it makes a lot of sense. You can swap mounts quite easily, even if not as easy as Tamron's adaptall system. Mine has an M42 mount.
