For my 500 the only filter that fits is a 52mm that drops in behind the
lens. But is is not very good as a lens protector.

If you have Photoshop you can really cut thru the haze..

I have had large success using levels. For details just Google, there are
tons of free tutorials on this.

A fool and his money are easily parted. Again. ;-)

Next time you think about spending your hard earned $$ on junk lenses,
or on an unnecessary UV filter, why don't you ask a few questions on
here *before* wasting your money rather than telling us only when it
is too late?

Several people would have told you not to waste your money. You might
also have had some good suggestions as to how you could spend the same
money on something different, but far better.

Okay, let's just rewind and ask... what could I of spent my $195 that
would of been FAR better to get me up close and personal with stuff
that I can't capture with my Tamron 18-250???? And my "hard earned
money" came from selling some junk I had sitting around the house on
eBay.

Some can't stand it when their pontifications, no matter how wrong, are
ignored.
BTW After reading your posting I will try some test shots with my old Nikkor
500 mirror.
