All MY reflectors are apochromatic. I am personally covered with infrared detectors and emit at 295 Kelvin, 24/7. If I were to recieve a spin entangled photon before you recieved its twin, MY photon would predict your photon's spin. Every time. MY family's lineage goes back over three billion years and has a whole branch of science devoted to studying it... The most Quotidian of observers
Incorrigible ocularholic. Keep calm, and carry on observing.

“A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it is not open.” ― Frank Zappa
“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
