Quote:Interesting! Good to hear there are some good Dynamaxes out there. I'm guessing around 1973/74 as the year for your 'scope. I've seen an old Astromart ad for a D8 with SN 1008 which I think was a 1971 model and the next SN i know of is 2480 for a 1976 model. Mine, a 1980 model, has SN 4268.Out of interest, what is the serial number shown on the ring retaining the corrector plate?James
