    @Chris A Hardaway and I were discussing how to put matte mirror lenses into a Romeo R1 frame. Chris felt that the Dillon Optics NIR lenses would be a poor choice for the R1, primarily because the thickness of the lenses would interfere with the frame. So I looked around and found another matte silver mirror lens. When Chris saw the specifications for the lens online, he thought it would be a good candidate for the Romeo, and agreed to cut the lenses to fit the R1.

    However, once Chris got the actual lenses in his hands, he realized that the online specs were wrong! The lenses would be much more difficult to cut for the R1 than anticipated. Nevertheless, Chris gamely carried on and completed the cut. (I'm pretty sure I heard him muttering "Never Again!" by the time he was done, though.)

    Thanks to Chris' perseverance and skill, we have these:
