I don't think NASA gave Kubrick Two $1.5M lenses

There's an article at the link below about the Zeiss lenses Kubrick used in Barry Lyndon.

From a Wikipedia article:

"In total there were only 10 lenses made. One was kept by Carl Zeiss, six were sold to NASA, and three were sold to Stanley Kubrick."

Also a video describing the modification of the Mitchell BNC and the use of the Zeiss f 0.7 lens on it.
