BTW, have you taken your moniker from the designer of Goerz's Dagor lens (Emile Von Hoegh) or is it co-incidence?
Not at all. Goerz N.Y. was originally the American office of the Berlin-Freidenau operation, they were seized as alien property when the U.S. entered WWI. At this time, virtually all lens designs were German or English.

No coincidence, I really am 148 years old as of last spring.
