the baby hypergonar should not be tampered with any attempt to tweak will possibly destroy the optics leave it alone is best.

the optics are sealed into the housing .

a few of these have been destroyed during attemps to take  apart.

the only way is to cut the body into 2 pieces you then run the risk of horrible vibration damage to the optics.

be thankful you have a rare lens or sell it on if you are a seeker of perfection.

I had a nice example but sold it as I prefer the small Moeller. Tony is - as usual - very good informed: The hypergonar was sometimes sold together with the Chinon Pocket-8 or Revue Pocket L super-8 cameras. These cameras had primes and with the 1.75 squeeze you could achive true 2.35. However the 1.5 squeeze (chosen by Moeller and Isco) is better for the tiny super-8. However maybe there have been sold some more Hypergonars cause especially the Revue cameras were for the mass market... ?! Just guessing.

Still a miracle what this tiny baby can produce  :o

Thanks for the information Tony. Let's see how it effects the image quality.

      I'm selling a copy of the smallest Anamorphic lens in the world, the Baby Hypergonar 1.75x. It's been said there were only about 50 of these ever made. Designed by the OG, Henri Chretien, and made in 1957.
      It is in great condition. Comes with a little black carry case. Really lovely copy, no scatches, fungus, haze. Body is in great shape. There are a few small coating blemishes on the front, but they are so hard to see I couldn't even capture them in the pictures, and they don't show up in performance. 
      Can be used by just focusing your taking lens or in combination with a single focus variable diopter. Neutral unique flares and beautiful rendering.
      - PRICE: $1500 USD
      - LENS NAME: Baby Hypergonar
      - CONDITION: Near Mint Optics, Mint Body
      - PAYMENT METHOD: PayPal
      - LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA, USA
      - FEES & SHIPPING: PayPal fees and shipping paid by buyer.
       
      Please PM me if interested
      .

      Hi anamorphic friends,
       
      I'm working a lot these past months so I post less than usual ;)
       
      Here is a teaser of the new album of Arthur H, a famous french singer. It was done before last summer, shot on GH3 + my baby Hypergonar 1.75x on my Qioptiq 35mm f1.6 MeVis-C C-mount lens.
      Badfully I didn't have the GH4 yet ;)
       
      My actual work is a 26mn Making Of a long feature movie, shot by me in 4K anamorphic in Ethiopia last november. Stay tune.
       
      Thanks
