04/01/2008 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

A study to be published in the New England
Journal of Medicine has found that extended
use of the ultra-wide field telescope eyepiece,
the TeleVue Ethos, can cause damage
to the muscles which control the focusing
of the eye lens.

NO NEED TO PANIC! Just wrap those offending Nagers and Pentaxes safely in a brown paper wrapper and mail 'em to me. I WILL SEE TO IT that they are disposed of safely.

Considering how fast the report appeared after the Ethos was introduced to the Public the authors must have submitted their paper when Uncle Al first thought about it. April Fools!
