A modified Pentax 300mm f/4 heads into space aboard a nanosatellite

"The Pentax 300mm f/4 is the KITSUNE satellite’s primary imaging instrument. From an orbit of about 250 miles above the Earth’s surface, it has a resolution of 5 meters or 16.5 feet, which means that every pixel in a photo taken with the satellite records a 16.5 x 16.5-foot area of the ground below."
