Quote:Over the years, I think this thread has gone through the washer and come out a different color. Even so, I thought I would add a new eyepiece/symbol to the thread.Anyone care to guess what telescope this BOL Japan eyepiece goes to???

Quote:If you check out this post: Crescent "KD" on CN You'll see the same mark on a Crescent in my collection. I've been trying to track that down for almost a year.Good to know that it may have some early Vixen ancestry.

Quote:I had an old 60mm f=900mm refractor once with the KD logo on it. The whole scope was pretty much made of plastic, including the tube but the optics were excellent. I gifted it to a friend and he has been enjoying it ever since. I could never figure out what an "Astoronomical" telescope was though.

Quote:Quote:JamesE,Did you notice that "Celestron" is misspelled on your 10X70 finder? That's a real conversation piece! I wonder how many of this particular finder were produced with this misspelling? Hey Lew,Yep, I did notice it when I first got it. I thought it was cool. Glad you like it too. My take, is that this was a first run series for Celestron and APL. Now I thought I read that APL eventually got taken over by Vixen. Is that correct? Cheers,
