    Default Has anyone tried an aspheric lens on a Minimag

    I am not talking about the Acrylic Ball but a hemisperic lens.

    How much did it improve throw?

    Where might someone find a aspheric lens that would fit a stock minimag?

    IIRC, this should be the correct dimmensions

    Not sure about the focal length though.

    I have these lenses and once briefly fitted it to my Minimag. Diameter is fine. The focal length is 25mm which is too much and the lens is fairly thick at the sides, which leaves a big gap. Not recommended to use in Minimag, except if you want to modify the head with an extension.
