I know some of you guys have some shelf space for this 158kg monster . For sale in Ukraine for $16.5K USD.

This is a lens from a Soviet Spy satellite Yantar 4K2(Amber-4K2) from a camera system Zhemchug-18 (Pearl-18).
1330mm lens length, 470mm lens diameter.

But of course nothing beats in size the Mezon-2A lens from a older satellite Yantar-2k - KMZ Mezon 2A - 500KG monster

After this 500kg lens they made 158 kg lens because they wanted to have something more compact.

It's for a spy satellite so it must be an Ajax F-21 ...

Yes, probaly because set (lens + Zenit E) would be too heavy.
