Massive NASA 2540mm F8 mirror tele lens – Just $33,500!


How many times have you wished you owned a 2540mm F/8 lens?

Are you worried the 1200mm lens you’ve been eyeing may not have the reach you need?

Today is your lucky day!

This huge 180-pound 2540mm F/8 mirror telephoto lens like those used by NASA to photograph Saturn V rockets can be yours on eBay for a mere $33,500 – plus $350 for international shipping (which sounds like a bargain for a 180 pound chunk of glass.)

Plan on spending a few thousand more to buy a tripod capable of supporting this massive beast. In fact if you do buy this beast I suggest you follow these words of wisdom:

“The ideal tripod is a cubic yard of solid concrete with a 1/4″³ X 20 bolt head sticking out of the top.” – Ansel Adams

“Have you seen my new 2540mm F8 mirror telephoto lens?” is a mouthful, so you can simply call your new lens “Jonel 100” as you marvel at it’s Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope design that produces a 57x57mm image that’s more than ample not only for 35mm digital cameras as well as medium format digital backs.
