TELEPHOTO LENS

The 36 inch Newman lens is representative of the intensive surface surveillance mounted during the 1960s. The telephoto lens attached to a 35mm movie camera was used throughout 10 years of surface surveillance by the Loch Ness Investigation Bureau. The objective was to achieve photographic records of the highest possible quality of the phenomena reported by many eyewitnesses and especially to reveal details of any head and neck exposed by any unusual creature. The Newman lens had a 140ft width of field at a mile range. An object only one foot wide could be recorded at that range. A continuous watch was maintained from the expedition’s base on high ground at Achnahannet, awaiting the calm weather associated with monster sightings, then vehicles mounting cameras were dispatched to vantage points along the north western shore. A number of inconclusive films were shot.
