OPTICAL GLASS FILTERS

Al Luebbers, our founder, collected glass. Not glass like you'd find on a knick-knack shelf, but optical glass. Lenses, prisms, reticles and filters, for example. Focus on the filters. Many of his filters came out of military surplus, and this is for-real stuff. We mean many are solid dyed optical glass, ground and polished to flatness standards that were probably excessive. Others are from the old days in photographic optics, and their standards were even tighter than your militaristic Uncle's. We've found that photographers, artists, and optical designers still have an occasional need for good glass filters, so we're making a list of some goodies. As always, don't be timid about calling for quotes on quantities. If we have 'em, we'll sell 'em. Just don't sell them back. Please!

Achromatic Lens

This achromatic doublet lens (them what won't distort color or shape any more than they absolutely have to) is in an oval metal mount with a small mounting hole opposite a set of prongs. Originally a projector lens of some sort, it measures 20mm dia (approx 3/4") with a 47mm (approx 1-7/8") focal length. Despite the fact that you could mount it in its current mounting using the mounting hole, we suspect you're just going to use it as a nice 5X loupe.

Protective Lens

One of those clear plastic jobs that goes over an automotive light or some such. It provides a bit of focusing to strengthen the beam and some protection, but isn't really an optical element. This one is 2-7/8" sq. x 9/16" thick. Actually, the plastic is only about 1/8" thick, but there is a rim to the rear which gives it overall depth. Good protection for outdoor lights. Could be set in the outhouse door to admit distorted light. Or flip it over and serve nuts in it.
