At my workplace the walls are decorated with various patent art such as the original Nintendo Game Boy, the Slinky, the Fender Stratocaster, etc. Being just an analyst, I only have a cubicle, but I thought I should also have my own specialized patent art too. The most obvious choice for me is my all-time favourite eyepiece design: the Plössl. And Tele Vue patented their version of it back in 1984 - so I found a copy of it and extracted the diagram, some of the parameters, the patent number and the date. I put it into a graphic the same way the other pieces of art were done at my work. The blue background I used is brighter than I'd like it, but it printed out much darker on my printer.

 

Anyway, I thought I'd share it in case anyone was interested. Enjoy!

My really old 20mm TV Plossl is one of my favorites.

Is your handle a Mexican Radio reference?
