APO Nikkor 240mm F9

Apo Nikkor lenses are specially designed for use in photoengraving work.
The lenses are also suitable for work, where no distortion is permissible at a reproduction ratio close to full size.
On the other hand, since the lenses give an excellent image, for wide picture angle at infinite distance as well as in enlarging work, they can also be utilized for a large size camera or an enlarger.
I mounted the APO Nikkor 240mm F9 lens on a Nikon SLR camera using a custom made mount adapter.
