Jupiter 6 180mm f/2.8

The Jupiter-6 is the Russian copy of the famous Carl Zeiss Sonnar 180 f2.8. It is not a M42 mount but a M39, but it can be used on M42 mount cameras and adapters with a small ring adapter.. The Jupiter 6-2 is the black M42 version which some later samples feature multi-coating.
