Zen 170 and Athena 170 domes compared

Recommended Posts

Travelling with the Nauticam 230 dome is a pain. The 6" cast acrylic Ritchie dome I made is not as good but can be used with Sigma 15 and Nikon 18mm without extension. I am considering a 170 dome. Anyone compared the Zen and Athena domes? I would be using it with the 15mm Sigma (with compromised placement since the 170 is not a hemisphere, but fisheye's are forgiving) and a wide rectilinear, probably 18mm Nikon. If and when I return to crop-sensor from a D800 I will use the Tokina 10-17 with it.

Thoughts?

Anyone got an Athena 170 dome? Can you measure the internal radius? (PM me if you want to know how to do this...)

Ive been using a Sigma 15mm with a zen 170 dome on my Nikon D810, and D800 before it. Ive had good results with the combo, especially in blue water shooting mantas and such at Socorro.

 

I plan to use the combo at Sipadan later this year with a D850. I keep looking at the wacp, but its a bit pricey at basically $4k US.
