I purchased a Nikon 500mm f8 mirror lens very cheap a few years ago but I think it's misaligned.

Where might I get it checked out without paying an arm and a leg?

Thanks

Nikon will check and give an estimate without charge. Parts availability will be a huge hurdle.

APS in Morton Grove, IL, can also check it out.

will take you to
http://www.nikoncamerarepair.com/ which is the same place.

You can even call and talk to them first and they can answer questions for you.

Do the images look soft? I have one, the newer style with the orange stripe on it. I use mine for long exposure astrophotography. I also have the Tamron model, it is a bit sharper. Hopefully you can get it working properly, itís a great lens.

I had tried it on my Sony A7Rii and it looked soft, I tried it on my D500 and I wasn't happy with it. I just tried it on my D850 and I'm impressed. I was about 40ft away from a Zeiss Test Chart and it's pretty damn good. I'll try it outdoors on something to be sure.

Thanks for the advice guys.
