I would dissent - I think the sub note about the polishing telescopes may count towards a gnat's eyelash xD

Built one when I was a kid -- including grinding a 10-inch mirror. Used the old Porter Stellafane (Amateur Telescope Making) books as a guide. Doing this kind of thing helps appreciate how difficult it was to produce the highest quality finish possible....much better than any camera lens.

You can buy the book and get much more minutiae and little extra cost -- plus a full CD of nano-minutiae right down to the molecules in a gnat's eyelash. :)

 

OK--ok--the gnat part is a bit of hyperbole.

If you would have acted a few years ago you could have had one signed by Roger :)

I will still sign copies for those who would like it. However I am now using a gnat's eyelash for a fountain pen. (Just request an autographed copy when ordering.)
