Canon 400mm f2.8 II array

Not quite too sure which forum to post this in, but figured there might be a few stargazers here who would appreciate it, even if it's mostly set up for the reverse! - using astro gear to photograph terrestrially .....

A "dragonfly" array of 24! count them! Canon 400mm f2.8L II lenses with the important SWC (although I think other manufacturer's Nano coat technologies might be just as good?) are used to spot difficult to photograph cosmic phenomena .... way to spend quarter of a million buck$!

Perhaps some of you DIY nutters on here might get some ideas???

Very interesting! Impressive, to say the least...

I did some calc and it seems that this setup is equivalent to a f/0.1 lens?!!
Could that be correct?
Not possible to build a single lens that fast I guess...
