This will work. It will require a hardware run for some washers, matching set of tripod hub bolts, tripod chain, etc.
It is missing the tail piece of the finder. I have the 6X30 reticle eyepiece with good crosshairs but no threaded end piece for the finder. The finder ota end is female and the fitting is male. I held the eyepiece in position by hand and have a sharp image with sharp hairs. I may have a basket finder.
WHAT I could use:
Confirmation on the original tripod to hub bolts. This seems to have a lot of 1/4-20 threaded parts, not metric. The bolt head type. I believe the original are straight slot pan or round head. These would likely be 100% threaded like a tap bolt. I'll try for a shoulder bolt, but I could use the thread size and head type.
I could use a close up of the chain. The leg brackets and tension screws are all original and good. It has the hooks on the bootom brackets for the chain. I'd like to try to match the chain and that will take a picture for my pea brain.
The toe guard. A picture if it is fancy with any pertinent info. Just a head description if it is boring, washer or not.
A picture of the finder eyepiece end. The eyepiece ring and how the eyepiece is held in. Anything pertinent about that end.
The double threaded adapter for the DEC slo-mo control shaft was not only stripped, it was broken in half between the external housing threads and the straight section. Amazing that the threaded control rod is in good shape and the threads in the housing are in good shape. I have some basket case mounts to cross. If nothing matches I can get a bolt to match the housing, then drill and tap it to match the control rod.
This thing had some real bass ackwards assembly. I don't doubt the seller looked at the moon (said he did), but that would have been a feasable chore. The OTA is good. It came with ONE eyepiece, Hyg. 6mm with a sun filter. I checked the optics for gross errors at 167X (over 60X per inch)on a washed out cloudy day today. Not bad, no problems. I can't wait to get it dark with a reasonable power. Guess I have to. Optics are clear and clean. Even the one ep does not have the load of speckles a scope in this condition is notorious for. The focuser is smooth and the pull tube is smooth with perfect friction. I used the image corrector in the test as well since it's terrestrial so I really loaded the optical train. Not bad.
No rust issues. The floppies are shiney into the windings.
