Johann, please let me know if you find the shorter one. I will hold off on chopping this one up (for now).
PiSigma has the opposite problem with his 4" in SC, unfortunately his is a little different design than mine and we can't just swap out. He suggested we start an exchange program for these so people can trade as they live in different parts of the country and needs change.

I have a few more boxes to go through. Will let you know tonight.

The shoter one I found is the newer style that is octagon shaped one. Total length is from pin center to pin center is 2" adjusted all the way in.

The transformation from last Oct. is impressive
An early 152, being an original unit is a rarity would be my guess.
Have you decided on which objective?
I hope it's now just the motor drive that you would need for a 155 transformation.
Thanks Bill. I'm still waiting for the second objective to come back from Barry at D&G. It has been there for almost 4 months now. I have frequently been told by Barry that it is "shipping this week".

I apprenticed for a very old school tool and dye mold maker.
In my studies I came away with a statement as well as a grumpy attitude when being rushed.
"You can have it RIGHT, or you can have it NOW, but you can't have it RIGHT NOW"!
I feel your pain!!
It will be worth it!!

I hope I didn't misrepresent my thoughts in my previous statement Steve.
It is much more palatable to use the engineering method; make you best estimate double it and that's what you tell your customer!
The customer may be disappointed in the beginning, but it's better than an excuse.
Artisans are a funny clan, they have the best intentions.

Sent the original lens that came with this scope to Barry at D&G today. Now that I have a second lens back in my hands, felt safer sending this one off. There are some minor fungus issues (after being stored in a garage in St. Paul, MN for 15 years), so I really wanted Barry to do the cleaning for me. Sorry this has been so slow...
4+ months now waiting to come back...maybe today ?

Barry did tell me today that it cleaned up very nice and was one of the best early 4" Unitron lenses he had seen.
