Come one, come all! See the amazing LANTHANUM-BARIUM ACHROMATIC TRIPLET & DOUBLET lens! It's got it all! It's astounding, it's spectacular, it's so good it even makes the ad text turn all the colors of the rainbow!! (carnival music loudly playing) I have no connection to this item:

These lenses are still at Surplus Shed. The objective alone is $250 at SS whereas the ones shown on eBay are both lenses for $269, which is better than SS pricing.

It's only $1 better than Surplus Shed pricing and the last 3 pics are the rear element of a Metrogon 6" which used to be sold by Surplus Shed. Clearly, they don't know their product and have not bothered to look at it. hmmmm...
