I third this suggestion. Well, I'd really just like to see the output with only the Q.

Anyways, nice lens!
I fourth it!

Seriously good times Clinton!
Why wait until daylight? Let's see some spectacular moon craters.

Congrats Clinton! Looking foward to seeing the shots!

I was following the other thread, my first thought that these ex-gov tele-photo lenses were being used as spy lenses.

Substantially larger than I was expecting. Listen, I'm expecting some stunning shots of the moon and your attractive neighbors in Colorado.

That is just one pretty amazing peace of engineering. It is funny how small that camera looks, yet at same time it is notfunny at all. Congratulations!

I've only got two words: Oh My...

(Clinton's reaction upon seeing pics of [forum member] smc's newly arrived A* 1200 - March 2, 2010) See post #44.

It isn't often that a dream comes true. Enjoy yours, Clinton!

Definition: A ute is a truck, to our American friends. Anyway, with summer approaching us here in the southern hemisphere, how about loaning us aussie members the lens for some, er..., tasteful beach photography???

Such a lovely and long lens is going to be wasted over there in the Northern hemisphere winter Clinton. I'll put it to some decent use during our Aussie summer so the helicoil lubricants don't go freezing up. I could see that as a perfect walk around lens for some of our nudist beaches.

Are the front and back of that lens even in the same zip code?
Very impressive addition to your glass menagerie, Clint.
