First Silver Medal at the local Arm-Wrestling match / 始めての銀メダル(米子がいな祭り杯)

Reverse side? Which is the face side?

Extra prie of the juicer. The fan is that the Muscular man of SDF personel,I defeated at the third round, gave to me.


Are you a highschool student? You were so strong for your age.
君は高校生か? それにしては強かったよ。


Later proved to be you were also a body-builder. You looked taller than me by 10cm and having 10kg more weight at least.
あなたもボディビルダーだったんですね。 私よりも身長で10cm、体重で10kgは大きかった。


You, Muscular SDF personnel,your rumor has being heard even in Tottori City that you were the most powerful winning candidate.
I will successively train myself so that I would not be revenged by you someday.


You were the giant that standed out most conspicuously among the competitors. You looked far above 6-feet and I heard that you were 108kg in the weight.
I will revenge you next time.

あなたは体重108kgだそうで、地元のプロレスラーだと後で聞きました。 次回は雪辱できるように頑張ります。

試合後の光景: 自衛隊ブースの隣でした。



115EDT-BINO in the planning / バックフォーカスの追加確保

The left is “after”, and the right is “before”.

Here is the wise solution of extending the back-focus.
It is the restorable customize of the focuser setting.

New EMS-UL(2mm光路長が短縮しました。)


The improved version of the EMS-UL is just ready to produce.
You may remember the announcement of the new version of EMS-UL posted on My 18th. With the stock of the new joint rings being ready, I am finishing the number-1 pair of the new EMS-UL SET for the US.

The new EMS-UL of the standard(minimum) spacing has evolved in terms of the following.

1.light-path-L1 was shortened by 2mm.
2.The rigidity of the joint increased by the simpler structure.
From 3-pieces to 2-pieces of the parts included.

3.Aperture rim is added at the end of the joint ring.
(It will improve the contrast.)

Now, I am announcinG the new definition of the light-path of the EMS.

The new definition of the light path consists of the two parts.
One is the L1,the fundamental lighg path, from the rim of the barrel to the rim of the filter flange. And the othre is L2, that is the height of the eye-piece adapter, in this case, 2-inch sleeve.
And the total light path is LL=L1+L2.

The comparison of the light path between the old and the new EMS-UL is the following.

OLD EMS-UL— L1+L2=92+58=150mm=LL
NEW EMS-UL— L1+L2=90+58=148mm=LL;
LL= total light path.

To minimize the L1 has the significant meaning in benifiting the margin of the back-focus of the scope. On the other hand just reducing the L2,the height of the adapter, is like a trick that must be canceled at the actual usage.

I will also show you the precise light-path of the EMS-UM in passing.

EMS-UM– L1+L2=78+44=122mm=LL

I must apologize to you for the wrong desplay of 120mm for a long time.
The reason was just simple. At the release of the EMS-UM, the original 31.7mm-adapter was 42mm in height, but later changed to 44mm by the report of users that so many eye-pieces touched the protective filter on the tip of the barrel.


Commemorative day / 記念すべき日

This is the commemorative day, today.
When I was watching the H-alpha Sun through the Solar EMS-BINO near the entrance of my shop , my Master,Mr.NIshikawa(the leader of the Armwrestling Dojo), kindly brought me the new T-shirt designed for our Dojo.(Ths is the naked one.)
The shirt was so nice and I was extremely happy that I could share the vivid prominence of the Sun through the Binoscope. He was so efficient to catch the prominence of the Sun despite that it was his first experience.
