Fuji X and William Optics RedCat 51 APO

Hello Fuji X users!

Does anyone own or has experience using a RedCat 51 APO on their Fuji X series? Experiences with the XT30 would be great as well, since I own one. If you do astrophotography with it, what Star Tracker are you using?

I've just seen too many great astro pictures with this thing:


Thanks in advance for anyone's experience.

Best Regards,

Hi Jay,

Sorry I can't help you.  You might still get some responses here but I suggest trying over in the Astro-photography Forum.  (And possibly the adapted lens forum.)  There may well be users of the lens there, although they are probably all using different mounts.  That shouldn't matter....

Looks like a good lens.  Pity they don't make am apo 500mm.....

Cheers, Rod
