Quote:If those numbers are in any kinda sequence then it appears that earlier models had phillips head screws securing the focuser while later models were threaded.
What some may view as an argument I view as a different perspective.
Quote:I finally received the telescope. More pics to come.Don, could you possibly get a photo of the empty box interior? All the wooden blocks have come loose in my box and i would like to know the original layout. Strange thing is, just the top and bottom of the case has severe water damage but the sides are still in pretty good shape. Cheers!
Quote:Don,I found this older thread which helps me a lot with the case pieces and more. Would still love to see photos of your scope though.
Quote:Thanks for the pics Don. That Jupiter scope is in great condition!There's a short video here of an Asahi Jupiter 60mm telescope on a mount like yours. The name on the focuser looks to be engraved instead of painted on a metal tag.
