    A reflex lens is typically used for astronomy work. Plus their apertures are fixed. You won’t be able control your depth of field. The focal length is achieved with mirrors as opposed to actual physical lenses. Any bokeh is displayed as rings that mimic the shape of the mirrors. It’s not a pretty look.
