This is a Vivitar 800mm f/8 Mirror Lens, called such because it can see a great distance without needing to be very long, as the lenses are set up like a series of mirrors, as many telescopes are.



The image quality is not great but it's a cheap lens and it can see forever. it also creates a unique donut-shaped bokeh, as seen here:




It can also see incredibly far! On a sensor with a 2x crop factor, like my old Olympus OMD-EM1, it has a 1600mm equivalent focal length. Let's see how far that means!



This is Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial, shortened to "Perry's Monument" by most. it is the world's largest Doric Column, at 352 feet tall. It stands as a commemmoration of the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812. It is located on South Bass Island, just outside the town of Put-In-Bay, a party town off the coast of Ohio, near Port Clinton.

Well, that's a pretty close photo! I took that a few years ago with an old film camera of mine, and suffice to say I'm on the island itself quite near to the monument. Let's see how the mirror lens finds it!



Gracious, that's a pretty terrible picture! It's a hot, windy day and between the wind and the heat haze, that's not exactly a great shot!

"But DJ!" You exclaim, pointing accusingly at your computer or phone screen. "This is some trickery! My quick google search of South Bass Island tells me the island isn't even 4 miles long! You're clearly not on the island!" You would be correct, you eagle-eyed viewer, you! I'm actually next to the Marblehead Lighthouse back on the mainland, seen here.

P2280106 by Ben Wilcox, on Flickr

Marblehead is a beautiful lighthouse and actually the longest running lighthouse on the US side of the Great Lakes! It's constructed entirely of limestone, which is readily found in the area, and has kept sailors and boaters safe from the rocky shores for nearly 200 years now! So how far is this lighthouse from Perry's Monument? Let's measure!



Goodness, this lens can see quite far!

Good but very inconsistent. They locked down a very good Minn-State for about 55 minutes in the championship game then just totally collapsed to hand the game over.

Overall they're for drat sure not better than Duluth, but Bergeron is a very good coach (and Miami is probably going to target him to get him back) and they'll have no pressure on them going into that game. Their scoring depth is great and when Ryan Bednard is on his game he's one of the better goalies around.

For all my bemoaning, this is easily BG's best season in legitimately decades. They were pissed to have lost the WCHA, even though they knew they were in. They haven't been to the NCAAs since 1990, but they haven't won a conference since 1988.

It will probably wind up being a goaltending duel. Bednard and Shepard are both fantastic but Duluth has been here before and I think there's a lot to be said for that. I'd imagine it will be something like a 2-3 game that may not be as close as the score shows. Duluth doesn't strike me as a team that would look past BG, but weird poo poo happens in the first round.

Scott Sandelin has never lost an opening round game, I think. He's 17-4 in the tournament, or something absurd like that. So I don't think they are the kind of staff or team that will overlook any opponent in the tournament.

BGSU looks really good on paper. RPI dinged them because of their SoS it seems.

edit: It must be 17-6. He's been in the tournament 8 times (9th this year) and has won 2 titles, so 6 losses seems right.

UMD is remarkably deep and has the best goalie in the country. Shepard is on a completely different level.

Scott Perunovich is out here doing things nobody else can do from the blue line, and he's got complete animals like Mikey Anderson backing him up. No look backhand to a streaking Anderson who absolutely crushes this puck.

Our 3rd line freshman Tanner Laderoute should be getting a bit more praise for setting up the GTG on the kill and the GWG. Kid is legit.

Yeah Bowling Green is both a team that beat the dog piss out of a very good Ohio State team 8-2 and gave up a 2-4 loss to Bama-Huntsville. Which one shows up is anyone's guess.

I don't think they have the depth or the guns to the level Duluth does, but if the good version shows up they'll at least hang in there with them through most of it

It should be a good one. It would be sweet to get some revenge for 85 84.

edit: I might do some deeper dives on the current and potential Bulldog matchups. One very consistent theme this year is teams who excel at faceoffs give UMD a ton of trouble. UMD is the #1 CF% team in the country, but if they are getting killed on faceoffs they really struggle to keep consistent pressure.

To wit: the teams we have struggled most with this year, UND (2 losses), WMU (1 loss, 1 SOL), SCSU (3 losses), Denver (2 shutout loving losses), all land in the Top 20 for FO%. UND was 1, WMU tied for 2, SCSU tied for 7, and Denver was an outlier at 20. That's 8 of 11 losses to teams with top faceoffs. MN, Clarkson, and CC are all a little different to explain.

I am heartened to learn BGSU is 40th in FO%.

The UMass game is on ESPN2, that's pretty cool. I'd like to try and find a stream of the AIC game too. I hope they keep it interesting. They were 0-6 outside of the AH this year but they did face all tournament teams.

Every time it got real quiet in the arena I would yell

SCHULDT YOU SUCK!

As loud as I could. At first, people thought it was funny how well I timed up the silent moments. Eventually they figured out I was gonna do it the entire game and even friendlies started giving me some chirps about it.

Anyway, Jimmy Schuldt, the guy I was heckling, was responsible for the turnover that lead to the GWG. Fuckin' owned.

AIC is going to get 100% slaughtered and Atlantic Hockey 100% Does Not Deserve An Autobid


I'm glad they had this huge turn-around (sounds like they've never even been over .500 in their history) but when the conference's best team finishes in the bottom half of the pairwise there is zero reason that conference should send anyone to the tournament.

Ah yes the sanctity of the one game elimination hockey tournament. I'd rather see some weird team from the AH in then another at large team. Air Force eliminating WM and SCSU was great.

If anything they should add a few teams and do a few playins to give the top seeds an actual advantage.

Weird poo poo tends to happen to SCSU in the tournament. Getting jumped on by a hungry AIC team would be par for the course.
