Here I am, at the lens-end of my modest APO Refractor Quintuplet. Igor snapped this candid daguerreotype, mere days before I fired him, for always inviting me to "Walk this way."    Tom

Matt, 

 

Have you tried the Riedel Performance line wine glasses? They use Schott water white glass, amazing stuff!
