I am a high school science teacher and I had a friend that gave me two Dynamax 8000's with Golden Pyramid tripods. Unfortunately the eyepieces and the offset eyepiece holder for both units have been lost while he was moving. I am interested in getting these units up an running for one of my science classes. Can anyone out there help? Where is the best place to buy parts?

Thank you so much!

Depends on where you live.

Your location would be useful...

you need to email Fred Pauli at Astroptx
http://www.astroptx....bcriterion.html
He takes a few days to answer his emails but last I knew he had just hired a sharp young gal to help him inventory.
You dont have one of the short legs that goes on the side do you?
if you PM Me I can explain further plus may have some of your needed parts. and eyepieces.

What's an offset eyepiece holder? The star diagonal?

That would be my guess, he could probably use a copy of your book...
