One part of the penal apparatus employed in that punitive institution, a woman's kitchen. The frying-pan was invented by Calvin, and by him used in cooking span-long infants that had died without baptism; and observing one day the horrible torment of a tramp who had incautiously pulled a fried babe from the waste-dump and devoured it, it occurred to the great divine to rob death of its terrors by introducing the frying-pan into every household in Geneva. Thence it spread to all corners of the world, and has been of invaluable assistance in the propagation of his sombre faith. The following lines (said to be from the pen of his Grace Bishop Potter) seem to imply that the usefulness of this utensil is not limited to this world; but as the consequences of its employment in this life reach over into the life to come, so also itself may be found on the other side, rewarding its devotees: Old Nick was summoned to the skies. Said Peter: "Your intentions Are good, but you lack enterprise Concerning new inventions. "Now, broiling in an ancient plan Of torment, but I hear it Reported that the frying-pan Sears best the wicked spirit. "Go get one -- fill it up with fat -- Fry sinners brown and good in't." "I know a trick worth two o' that," Said Nick -- "I'll cook their food in't."

Panoptic. An eyepiece design invented by the extremely well-regarded optical designer Al Nagler and sold by his company TeleVue. Panoptics have a somewhat lesser FOV than do Nagler eyepieces, but still provide a very wide FOV. They provide a terrific view of DSO s, at a lower price than comparable Naglers and are regarded as eyepieces that have a very high value to price ratio for wide-field observing. But they still are expensive eyepieces – fortunately you don’t need very many of them to enjoy observing DSOs.
