    Joe, look up the petzval design for lenses. It should be quite easy to make one by getting stuff from the surplus shed.

    Joe - you might also consider an achromat. They're inexpensive, readily avail. at Surplus Shed, and with their two glued elements they are often much sharper than a single meniscus - especially if stopped down some.

    dwerg, did you see that Jody Ake (in camera industries) is creating a modern petzval with 3D printing technology? I have yet to see the working prototype, but it sounds great.
