Before and after images of one of the more recent worst case scenarios. This ruggedized quartz and Invar constructed 18 cm Maksutov-Cassegrain lens is among several that have been refurbished at Company Seven for the U.S. Air Force. The incoming lenses suffered from poor design of the Invar housings, tampering and violation of seals, exposure to harsh environments (salt air, high temperatures and humidity), each Quartz Primary Mirror was chipped. We repaired and recoated the mirrors and lens sets, stripped and reconditioned the optical tube assemblies, installed new and more effective seals and pressure relief hardware. All the work on each lens was accomplished in a matter of three months or so. Few other companies, even larger companies have the flexibility to respond so quickly and capably, and at such a comparatively moderate cost.
