original work and things that inspire me. I'm a husband, father, art director at Target, designer, artist, gear head, tech geek and music junkie. I like to go sideways on four wheels and some wood.

Carl Zeiss Planar 50mm f/0.7 is one of the largest aperture lenses in the history of photography. The lens was designed and made specifically for the NASA Apollo lunar program to capture the far side of the moon in 1966.
Stanley Kubrick used these lenses when shooting his film “Barry Lyndon”, which allowed him to shoot the scene only by candlelight.
In total there were only 10 lenses made. One was kept by Carl Zeiss, six were sold to NASA, and three were sold to Stanley Kubrick.
