    I had its predecessor, the Lubitel 2, in the mid-seventies. I actually managed to take a reasonably good photo of a partial eclipse with it, using crossed polarizers to get the light level down to safe levels. Unfortunately the negs and prints are long gone, lost them when I moved in the 90s. The only problem I'm aware of is dust in the viewfinder, I've since seen several second hand and they've all been noticeably dusty, also sometimes in the taking lens.
