    Know I have posted this formula in the past but otherwise fair game to all before I check my notes or spare lenses to compare with:

    Got a 100+ year old set of 3.1/2" lenses to a lens accessory on a starlight sciopticon assembly that does a lens train in front of the wheel in refining the image. Page 18 in the lens train to Chicago Stage Lighting Co. Catalogue (CB WiKee) - in this case by Kliegl as a maker of this specific lens train.

    Lenses measer 3.1/2" wide by 7/16" thick when standing on the convex side.

    What size of Altman 3.5Q lenses - given these measured are toast should I replace them with?
