As a new business, I thought I'd just give you the heads up on a new hybred RFT "wide Boy" concept which I will be testing tonight,l having fnished this afternoon.
A Jaegers 6" f5 1960's mint magfl coated lens, baffled and flocked with collimatable cell. A one off as production models will be multi coated new lenses made to Moonraker specs, and just as good at f5 for real wide seeing.

Any feed back really appreciated. Thank you.
