I got it for free so went about fixing her up .
The optics in the main tube were perfect so I did not have to touch them , luckly.
The finder was without an objective lense but I have a few 30mm achro's lying around and found one that fitted alright .
The mount needed total stripping and while it was apart I hand made some 1mm teflon bearing surface spacers to run on some fiber washers to replace the fiber washer/alloy casting bearing surface's from standard . This was probably ok when new but sadly woeful now and the new teflon/fibre washers work wonderfully now , super smooth with the right stickability , nice ! .
On the mount it is a very solid one and is easily up to holding the 62mm very solidly .
I got a friend to paint the OTA and finder in a 2 pak Navy internal piping paint , he even managed the pebble effect of the origonal paint , such as it was !! .
I have posted a photo of that effect , but it has not come out well so use your imaginations .
All in all I think it come out ok for what it looked like when I found it , I dont know how anyone can let a beautiful classic scope like this get so bad ???
She has a new lease on life now and looking good .
Hope you all enjoy .
Now just looking for another project .
