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.

 

1回戦:
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。

 

2回戦:
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。

 

3回戦:
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.
マッチョな自衛隊員さん、あなたが優勝候補だという噂が鳥取まで聞こえていましたよ。今回は私が先手を取らせていただきました。
次回、雪辱されないように、精進します。(自衛隊のうちわ、ありがとう。^^)

 

決勝戦:
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.
原状復元可能な方法でバックフォーカスの追加確保が可能なことが分かりました。(鏡筒販売店のサイトには、「(標準状態で)余裕で合焦・・」とありますが、単体用のEMSで合焦しても、BINO用のEMSで合焦するとは限りません。それはBINOの場合は、鏡筒間隔(D)の設定によって、必要バックフォーカスが大きく変化するからです。一般的に、業者さんはその辺の理解がまだ不十分のようです。)

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.

(11月中旬のウェブサイト・クラッシュで日本文が消失しました。EMS-ULの光路長が2mm短くなったというニュースです。英文はたまたま控えがあり、復元できました。12/07記)

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.

今日は二重の意味で記念すべき日となりました。
Hα太陽の観察システムを構築したばかりの125ED-BINOを、店の入り口付近にセットアップして太陽を見ていたら、アーム道場の師匠のNnishikawaさんが出来上がったばかりの道場ロゴ入りのTシャツを届けてくださいました。
Sサイズということで、着られるか不安がありましたが、延びる素材で、この通り全く問題なし。(因みにシャツの中身はこれです。^^;)
月末の試合(於:米子がいな祭)に向けて身が引き締まるわけですが、それよりも、この稀有なタイミングで師匠に太陽のプロミネンスを見ていただけたことがラッキーでした。
正立像で(鏡筒2本の)双眼で、しかも12.5cmの口径でHα太陽を見たのはまだ世界で私と師匠だけかも分かりません。
(ただ強烈な太陽光を単純に減光しただけでは、黒点は見えますが、彩層やプロミネンスは見えません。それらが見えるようにするには、太陽光の幅広い波長域の中から、Hα線だけをピンポイントで抜き出さないといけないので、極めてハードルの高い挑戦なのです。(一般の方もご存知のように、通常の望遠鏡は太陽に向けることすら厳重タブーです。(失明する))
