Am I the only one who got hung up on the patents page?  I couldn't get past the notion that the answer had something to do with a patent.

I thought what turned out to be the phone number might be a patent #. But when it didn't match any on that page I moved on.

I searched "patent 7.4865" in google and came up with a patent that dealt with photography.  Since the clue was a photograph I thought I was on to something!  I didn't recognize the telephone next to the number in the squashed photo.  Even after I read the explanation of the clue I still couldn't tell that it was a telephone.  The thing that's not a moon looked like the front of a lens to me.  So the answer I submitted was "Lens".
