Tony Lovell built this 900mm camera lens using £250 of surplus government optics, a custom-machined aluminum body, and lots of ingenuity. It looks great, and the resulting shot of the moon (above) isn’t too shabby, either. An equivalent commercial lens would cost many thousands of dollars. [thanks, Robert!]
