Very happy, thanks Johann! Hey, 1 small control shaft was broken on my 128 in shipping if you have an extra.

I will keep complete scopes, complete scopes. I will only talk about spare parts that people will need. This is not an advertisement for spare parts for sale (disclaimer for our moderator) However, I will always welcome PM's asking for advice :whistle:

The rarest is most likely the fork mounted 150. Also have a very old 152. A very old 142 is also in the group. Also the 114 that bolts directly to the mount. These are all mid 50's scopes.

Do not remember if I bought that from you. This one is so old that the box looks primtive. The OTA, mount and tripod all fit in the same box. The objective has no writing on it. Only the focuser.

Awesome! Now I don't feel so guilty about depleting that collection by one mount. Better this gear be in the hands of someone who appreciates it rather than buried in a closet. Don't see any folded 75mms- certainly there's one there?
