    Very interesting, thanks for posting this. I find myself wondering what use there could be for this camera.

    The link shows three reflecting telescopes an 800mm F3.8, a 2000mm F11, and the big bertha 5200mm f14. All three apparently were used in the Olympics in Tokyo in 1964 by the TV networks, The descriptive pamphlet looks like a vintage 1964 document and the camera body was probably a Canon F-1.
    The 800m f3.8 is very interesting - that is still a very impressive aperature, even today for that focal length. Think we might find one on ebay, waxy?? :D
