Dear Leonard,

Long time ago I have visited your site, it has improved since that day. Very nice work. My name is Ernst Thiel and I am a Canon collector from the Netherlands. At your FD pages I saw the mentioning of two giant cat lenses. Dr. Heinrich Tauscher supplied you some info about the 800 and 2000mm mirror lenses. But the information wasn't complete. I have a booklet of the Canon mirror lenses dated May 1965. The title explains it all: Canon Mirror lenses, TV-800mm 1:3.8 , TV-2000mm 1:11 and TV-5200mm 1:14. Subtitle is World's Brightest Lens Widest Mobility Longest Focal Distance.

I can try to scan it for you if you like. Here are some facts about the lenses:
800 mm 1:3.8
Dimensions Length: 463mm (hood 275mm) Wide: 298mm
2000 mm 1:11
Dimensions Length: 603mm (hood 470mm) Wide: 246mm
5200 mm 1:14
Dimensions Length: 1290mm (hood 390mm) Wide: 500x600mm Weight: 100kg

I hope that this info is usefull for you. Let me know if you would like a scanned copy. Kind regards.
