I recently picked up this off axis guider on ebay for my SCT and cannot find a brand anywhere on it. The seller had no info on it either. It is nicely built, all metal, with a nice big focal reducer in the middle too. Does not look like any ones I have seen on the web. I suspect an older model, since its built like a tank like my Lumicon big guider. Thanks to anyone that can help me ID the maker.

:question:

Looks old, Japanese. Does this thread on the 3" rear port of the larger Meade or Celestron SCTs? These three inch ports have a different thread so it was likely made for one of the companies.
