      I think a first indication of the sharpness and overall quality of my 175
      f/8 TMB can be seen in this image:
      http://astrid.astrolab.be/jsp/zoek.jsp?arg=HP6X9764 (left is the original
      image, right is the processed image). This Moon image was made on November
      20th, 2004. The set of 2 images do also shw how much there is to be gained
      from digital processing.
